<p>
DBMail is a mail storage and retrieval daemon that uses SQL databases
as its data store. IMAP and POP3 can be used to retrieve mails from the
database.

<description>
<p>
A vulnerability in DBMail's authldap module when used in conjunction
with an Active Directory server has been reported by vugluskr. When
passing a zero length password to the module, it tries to bind
anonymously to the LDAP server. If the LDAP server allows anonymous
binds, this bind succeeds and results in a successful authentication to
DBMail.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="low">
<p>
By passing an empty password string to the server, an attacker could be
able to log in to any account.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All DBMail users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-mail/dbmail-2.2.9&quot;</code>
</resolution>
