New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated 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).
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
