Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Thomas Jarosch discovered that Postfix incorrectly handled
authentication mechanisms other than PLAIN and LOGIN when the Cyrus
SASL library is used. A remote attacker could use this to cause
Postfix to crash, leading to a denial of service, or possibly execute
arbitrary code as the postfix user.
Update the affected postfix package.
