3. Description:

The cyrus-imapd packages contain a high-performance mail server with IMAP,
POP3, NNTP, and Sieve support.

Multiple buffer overflow flaws were found in the Cyrus IMAP Sieve

of the Cyrus IMAP server user. (CVE-2009-2632, CVE-2009-3235)

Users of cyrus-imapd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. After installing
the update, cyrus-imapd will be restarted automatically.
