Detail

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Ubuntu 10.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
dovecot-common 1:1.2.9-1ubuntu6.3

Ubuntu 10.10:
dovecot-common 1:1.2.12-1ubuntu8.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that the ACL plugin in Dovecot would incorrectly propagate ACLs to new mailboxes. A remote authenticated user could possibly read new mailboxes that were created with the wrong ACL. (CVE-2010-3304)

It was discovered that the ACL plugin in Dovecot would incorrectly merge ACLs in certain circumstances. A remote authenticated user could possibly bypass intended access restrictions and gain access to mailboxes. (CVE-2010-3706, CVE-2010-3707)

It was discovered that the ACL plugin in Dovecot would incorrectly grant the admin permission to owners of certain mailboxes. A remote authenticated user could possibly bypass intended access restrictions and gain access to mailboxes. (CVE-2010-3779)

It was discovered that Dovecot incorrecly handled the simultaneous disconnect of a large number of sessions. A remote authenticated user could use this flaw to cause Dovecot to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2010-3780)
