Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Dovecot reports :

If two users with the same password and same pass_filter variables log
in within auth_cache_ttl seconds (1h by default), the second user may
get logged in with the first user's cached pass_attrs. For example if
pass_attrs contained the user's home/mail directory, this would mean
that the second user will be accessing the first user's mails.
