CVE ID : CVE-2009-2939 CVE-2011-0411 CVE-2011-1720
Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Postfix, a mail transfer
agent. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
the following problems:
The postinst script grants the postfix user write access to
/var/spool/postfix/pid, which might allow local users to
conduct symlink attacks that overwrite arbitrary files.
The STARTTLS implementation does not properly restrict I/O
buffering, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to insert
commands into encrypted SMTP sessions by sending a cleartext
command that is processed after TLS is in place.
A heap-based read-only buffer overflow allows malicious
clients to crash the smtpd server process using a crafted SASL
We need to update to 2.7.4, as we have 2.7.1 now. Also, the bug 908 should be set as "block", not as "depend".
*** Bug 1281 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
postfix 2.7.4 is now in cauldron.
