Summary

The remote host is missing an update to dovecot announced via advisory DSA 1457-1.

Insight

Insight

It was discovered that Dovecot, a POP3 and IMAP server, only when used with LDAP authentication and a base that contains variables, could allow a user to log in to the account of another user with the same password. For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.10-1. For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.rc15-2etch3. The old stable distribution (sarge) is not affected. We recommend that you upgrade your dovecot packages.
