This is a bug in a third-party IPv6 patch that is not part of Postfix.

Neither the official Postfix release, nor the work-in-progress
version are not affected by this.

I am aware of this, but thanks for the notification.

The Ubuntu advisories (and in fact the advisories of all
Distributions) mostly talk about packages, which do not exactly
correspond to the "official" original releases (which we
call"upstream" releases). The Ubuntu package contains the IPv6 patch,
and since it is called "postfix", I just name it like this.

Sorry for any confusion this might cause.

Have a nice day,
