Changes Since 2.5.6

Security fixes

  • CVE-2015-8077, CVE-2015-8078: protect against integer overflow in urlfetch range checks

SSL changes

  • Support for legacy SSLv2 and SSLv3 protocols has been removed

    These protocols were previously enabled by default, but could be disabled by removing them from tls_versions in imapd.conf(5). They are now completely unsupported.

    Administrators needing to support these protocols may find a patch in contrib/allow-broken-sslv23.patch. With this patch, SSLv2 and SSLv3 will be disabled by default, but can be enabled by adding them to tls_versions. Users of this patch do so at their own risk.

  • Support for TLS compression has been removed (thanks Ondřej Surý)

    This was previously disabled by default, but could be enabled with tls_compression in imapd.conf(5). It is now completely unsupported.

  • Fixed: crash in sync_server when built with buggy Sun CC (thanks Jens Erat)

  • Fixed bug #3908: crash in ctl_mboxlist -m
