 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDVSA-2009:242-1

 Package : dovecot
 Date    : September 22, 2009
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in dovecot:
 Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the Sieve plugin in Dovecot
 1.0 before 1.0.4 and 1.1 before 1.1.7, as derived from Cyrus libsieve,
 allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
 (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted SIEVE
 script, as demonstrated by forwarding an e-mail message to a large
 number of recipients, a different vulnerability than CVE-2009-2632
 This update provides a solution to this vulnerability.
