- Plesk Onyx for Linux
CVE-2019-11500 vulnerability is found in Dovecot and Pigeonhole.
All Dovecot versions prior to 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 are affected.
This vulnerability allows for out-of-bounds writes to objects stored on the heap up to 8096 bytes in pre-login phase, and 65536 bytes post-login phase, allowing a sufficiently skilled attacker to perform complicated attacks that can lead to leaking private information or remote code execution. Abuse of this bug is very difficult to observe, as it does not necessarily cause a crash. Attempts to abuse this bug are not directly evident from logs.
