    Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Fail2ban, a solution to ban hosts 
    that cause multiple authentication errors. When using Fail2ban to monitor
    Postfix or Cyrus IMAP logs, improper input validation in log parsing 
    could enable a remote attacker to trigger an IP ban on arbitrary 
    addresses, resulting in denial of service.
