Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Updated dovecot packages fix security vulnerability.

Dovecot before 2.2.13 is vulnerable to a DoS attack against
imap/pop3-login processes. If SSL/TLS handshake was started but wasn't
finished, the login process attempted to eventually forcibly
disconnect the client, but failed to do it correctly. This could have
left the connections hanging around for a long time (CVE-2014-3430).
