Subject: Re: CVE request: Dovecot remote DoS on TLS connections

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

> The current Dovecot (2.2.16) imap/pop3 server has an issue that
> handshake failures will lead to a crash of the login process.

> can cause the imap-login
> and pop3-login processes to crash on handshake failures

> An example where this is triggered is if the server is configured to
> not allow SSLv3 connections and a client tries to connect with SSLv3
> only.

> The reason is that the error handling routine will try to finish the
> handshake and that will crash. Details here:
