Perdition allows users to connect to a content-free POP3 or IMAP4
server that will redirect them to their real POP3 or IMAP4 server. This
enables mail retrieval for a domain to be split across multiple backend
servers on a per user basis. This can also be used to as a POP3 or IMAP4
proxy especially in firewall applications. Perdition supports arbitrary
library based map access to determine the server for a user. POSIX
Regular Expression, GDBM, Berkeley DB, MySQL, PostgreSQL, ODBC and LDAP
libraries ship with the distribution.

* Fix for CVE-2013-4584
Perdition fails to apply the administrator's specified ciphersuite
preferences when making outbound connections to IMAP and POP servers
using STARTTLS.  For these outbound connections, it applies the
administrator's listening ciphersuite preferences, which in many cases
may be significantly weaker.
This is not a critical vulnerability (it can be mitigated, for example,
by enforcing a strict minimalist ciphersuite on the backend server),
but in the absence of any such mitigation, it may cause the connections
between the proxy server and the backend server to negotiate a weaker
ciphersuite than the administrator's stated intent.
