Fedora 15 : dovecot-2.0.13-1.fc15 (2011-7268)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 54912


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- dovecot updated to 2.0.13

- mdbox purge: Fixed wrong warning about corrupted extrefs.

- script-login binary wasn't actually dropping privileges to the user/group/chroot specified by its service settings.

- Fixed potential crashes and other problems when parsing header names that contained NUL characters.

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


Update the affected dovecot package.
