Fedora 13 : dovecot-1.2.17-1.fc13 (2011-7612)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 55055


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


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

- IMAP: Fixed a memory leak with ESEARCH command handling

- Quota warnings could have been executed at incorrect times with some configs.

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.
