Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59069
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-387-1 (dovecot)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-387-1 (dovecot)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to dovecot
announced via advisory USN-387-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

Dovecot was discovered to have an error when handling its index cache
files. This error could be exploited by authenticated POP and IMAP
users to cause a crash of the Dovecot server, or possibly to execute
arbitrary code. Only servers using the non-default option
mmap_disable=yes were vulnerable.

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
dovecot-common 1.0.beta3-3ubuntu5.4

Ubuntu 6.10:
dovecot-common 1.0.rc2-1ubuntu2.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
