Description Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2019-08-28 15:52:13 UTC
This sounds it could become very severe if someone publishes an exploit:

Please bump, and contain the fix.
Comment 1 Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2019-08-28 16:38:36 UTC
Pigeonhole is also affected (gets installed with dovecot with USE="sieve"), fix is in
Comment 2 Hank Leininger 2019-08-28 17:33:28 UTC
FWIW, bumping ebuild to built & running fine here with no other changes.

I do not use sieve so cannot comment on it.
Comment 3 Christian Hoffmann 2019-08-28 18:59:46 UTC
This is CVE-2019-11500 according to the oss-sec report.

Confirming that bumping to dovecot- with sieve_version= builds and runs on amd64. Sieve-based filtering still works.
