Changes Since 3.0.2

Security fixes

An authenticated non-admin IMAP user could overwrite an arbitrary file (subject to cyrus user permissions) with specially crafted SYNCAPPLY, SYNCGET or SYNCRESTORE commands.

This issue was introduced with commit 152f59c and affects all releases from the 3.0 series prior to this. 2.5 and earlier are not affected.

It is fixed by commits 53c4137 and 5edadcf.

Earlier release notes from the 3.0 series stated that the default value of the virtdomains option had changed from off to userid. This is not the case: the default is still off, and will remain so for the life of the 3.0 series.
