Could a CVE be assigned for the following please?
Dovecot 2.1.11 was released and includes a fix for a crash
condition when the IMAP server was issued a SEARCH command with
multiple KEYWORD parameters. An authenticated remote user could
use this flaw to crash Dovecot.
Please use CVE-2012-5620 for this issue.
We were discussing this issue too at  and think that it does only
affect the current connection, no subsequent (i.e. new) connections
What's your opinion wrt this?
