Package        : dovecot
CVE ID         : CVE-2020-24386 CVE-2020-25275

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Dovecot email
server.

CVE-2020-24386

    When imap hibernation is active, an attacker (with valid credentials
    to access the mail server) can cause Dovecot to discover file system
    directory structures and access other users' emails via specially
    crafted commands.

CVE-2020-25275

    Innokentii Sennovskiy reported that the mail delivery and parsing in
    Dovecot can crash when the 10000th MIME part is message/rfc822 (or
    if the parent was multipart/digest). This flaw was introduced by
    earlier changes addressing CVE-2020-12100.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:2.3.4.1-5+deb10u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your dovecot packages.

tracker page at:
