Package        : postfix
Version        : 3.4.23-0+deb10u2
CVE ID         : CVE-2023-51764
Debian Bug     : 1059230

Postfix, a popular mail server, 
allowed SMTP smuggling unless configured with
smtpd_data_restrictions=reject_unauth_pipelining
and smtpd_discard_ehlo_keywords=chunking
(or certain other options that exist in recent versions).

Remote attackers can use a published exploitation technique to
inject e-mail messages with a spoofed MAIL FROM address,
allowing bypass of an SPF protection mechanism.

This occurs because Postfix supported . but
some other popular e-mail servers do not.

To prevent attack variants (by always disallowing  without ),
a different solution is required, such as setting the backported
configuration option smtpd_forbid_bare_newline=yes

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version
3.4.23-0+deb10u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your postfix packages.
