Date: Mon, 3 Dec 2012 10:33:41 -0700 From: Vincent Danen <vdanen@...hat.com> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: CVE request: Dovecot DoS in 2.x (fixed in 2.1.11) Could a CVE be assigned for the following please? Dovecot 2.1.11 was released and includes a fix for a crash condition when the IMAP server was issued a SEARCH command with multiple KEYWORD parameters. An authenticated remote user could use this flaw to crash Dovecot. The upstream fix was to remove the keyword merging code. This code does not exist in Dovecot 1.x, but it does affect 2.x versions, at least as far back as 2.0.9 (earliest version I checked).
