Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2019-12-23 21:50:07 UTC
CVE-2019-19783 (
  An issue was discovered in Cyrus IMAP before 2.5.15, 3.0.x before 3.0.13,
  and 3.1.x through 3.1.8. If sieve script uploading is allowed (3.x) or
  certain non-default sieve options are enabled (2.x), a user with a mail
  account on the service can use a sieve script containing a fileinto
  directive to create any mailbox with administrator privileges, because of
  folder mishandling in autosieve_createfolder() in imap/lmtp_sieve.c.

After discussion we (security) aren't interested in keeping this package alive.
@ Treecleaner(s): Please do your job (maybe someone else will step up and take care).
