dovecot vulnerability
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 11.10

Summary:

Dovecot could be made to expose sensitive information over the network.

Software Description:
- dovecot: IMAP and POP3 email server

Details:

It was discovered that Dovecot incorrectly validated certificate hostnames
when being used as a POP3 and IMAP proxy. If a remote attacker were able to
perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be exploited to view
sensitive information.

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 11.10:
  dovecot-common                  1:2.0.13-1ubuntu3.2

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
