SUSE SLES12 Security Update : cyrus-imapd (SUSE-SU-2016:1457-1) (POODLE)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

- Previous versions of cyrus-imapd would not allow its
users to disable old protocols like SSLv1 and SSLv2 that
are unsafe due to various known attacks like BEAST and
remedies this issue by adding the configuration option
'tls_versions' to the imapd.conf file. Note that users
who upgrade existing installation of this package will
*not* have their imapd.conf file overwritten, i.e. their
IMAP server will continue to support SSLv1 and SSLv2
like before. To disable support for those protocols,
it's necessary to edit imapd.conf manually to state
'tls_versions: tls1_0 tls1_1 tls1_2'. New installations,
however, will have an imapd.conf file that contains
these settings already, i.e. newly installed IMAP
servers do *not* support SSLv1 and SSLv2 unless that
support is explicitly enabled by the user. (bsc#901748)

- An integer overflow vulnerability in cyrus-imapd's
urlfetch range checking code was fixed. (CVE-2015-8076,
CVE-2015-8077, CVE-2015-8078, bsc#981670, bsc#954200,

- Support for Elliptic Curve
(ECDH) has been added to cyrus-imapd. (bsc#860611)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
