Description

Dovecot 1.1 before 2.2.13 and dovecot-ee before 2.1.7.7 and 2.2.x before 2.2.12.12 does not properly close old connections, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via an incomplete SSL/TLS handshake for an IMAP/POP3 connection.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-dovecot
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-dovecot-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-dovecot-mysql
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-dovecot-pgsql
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-dovecot-pigeonhole
