Subject: CVE-identifier request for Dovecot ACL security bug

Hash: SHA1

Can I get CVE-identifier for this issue?

"This release fixes a bug in ACL plugin, which could be considered a
security bug: If Maildir is used with default settings (INBOX is same
as Maildir root dir) and user set some ACLs to INBOX, those ACLs were
copied to all newly created mailboxes. This should have been done only
for "default ACLs", but with Maildir the INBOX directory is the same as
the default ACL directory, so this mixup happened. This bug exists only
in v1.2.x releases."

Please note that this is different issue than: CVE-2010-0745

Best regards,
Henri Salo
Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
