Vulnerability CVE-2021-33582


Published: 2021-09-01

Description:
Cyrus IMAP before 3.4.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (multiple-minute daemon hang) via input that is mishandled during hash-table interaction. Because there are many insertions into a single bucket, strcmp becomes slow. This is fixed in 3.4.2, 3.2.8, and 3.0.16.

Type:

CWE-327

(Use of a Broken or Risky Cryptographic Algorithm)
