    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Dovecot email
    server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following issues:
    
    CVE-2017-14461
    
        Aleksandar Nikolic of Cisco Talos and 'flxflndy' discovered that
        Dovecot does not properly parse invalid email addresses, which may
        cause a crash or leak memory contents to an attacker.
    
    CVE-2017-15130
    
        It was discovered that TLS SNI config lookups may lead to excessive
        memory usage, causing imap-login/pop3-login VSZ limit to be reached
        and the process restarted, resulting in a denial of service. Only
        Dovecot configurations containing local_name { } or local { }
        configuration blocks are affected.
    
    CVE-2017-15132
    
        It was discovered that Dovecot contains a memory leak flaw in the
        login process on aborted SASL authentication.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1:2.2.13-12~deb8u4.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:2.2.27-3+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your dovecot packages.
