Description:
Previous versions of the dovecot package are vulnerable to an
Unauthorized Access attack in which a remote attacker may bypass
password authentication.

dovecot is not installed by default on rPath Linux systems, and
the default dovecot configuration file provided with rPath Linux
does not trigger this vulnerability; only systems customized to
include and reconfigure dovecot may be vulnerable.
