[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: logcheck-database
Version: 1.2.45
Severity: normal

The updated violations.ignore.d/logcheck-ssh now also contains 2
postfix rules which apparently slipped in there accidentally:

# grep postfix /etc/logcheck/violations.ignore.d/logcheck-ssh
^\w{3} [ :[:digit:]]{11} [._[:alnum:]-]+ postfix/smtpd\[[[:digit:]]+\]: warning: [-._[:alnum:]]+\[[.[:digit:]]+\]: SASL (LOGIN|PLAIN|(DIGEST|CRAM)-MD5|APOP) authentication failed$
^\w{3} [ :[:digit:]]{11} [._[:alnum:]-]+ postfix/smtpd\[[[:digit:]]+\]: warning: SASL authentication failure: Password verification failed$
