FreeBSD : dovecot -- security hole in blocking passdbs (b39bdc06-ee42-11dc-8678-00a0cce0781e)
High Nessus Plugin ID 31438
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionDovecot reports :
Security hole in blocking passdbs (MySQL always. PAM, passwd and shadow if blocking=yes) where user could specify extra fields in the password. The main problem here is when specifying 'skip_password_check' introduced in v1.0.11 for fixing master user logins, allowing the user to log in as anyone without a valid password.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
