Doc Text:
A flaw was found in cyrus-imapd. A bad string hashing algorithm used in internal hash tables allows user inputs to be stored in predictable buckets. A user may cause a CPU denial of service by maliciously directing many inputs to a single bucket. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability.

A flaw was found in cyrus-imapd 2.4, 2.5, 3.0, 3.2 and 3.4. A bad string hashing algorithm used in internal hash tables allows user inputs to be stored in predictable buckets.  A user may cause a CPU DOS by maliciously directing many inputs to a single bucket.
