 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2014:060
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : imapsync
 Date    : March 14, 2014
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated imapsync package fixes security vulnerabilities:
 
 Imapsync, by default, runs a release check when executed, which
 causes imapsync to connect to http://imapsync.lamiral.info and send
 information about the version of imapsync, the operating system and
 perl (CVE-2013-4279).
 
 The imapsync package has been patched to disable this feature.
 
 In imapsync before 1.584, a certificate verification failure when
 using the --tls option results in imapsync attempting a cleartext login
 (CVE-2014-2014).
