Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA083] DSA-083-1 procmail

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-083-1 procmail

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Using older versions of procmail it was possible to make procmail
crash by sending it signals. On systems where procmail is installed
setuid this could be exploited to obtain unauthorized rights.

This problem has been fixed in version 3.20 by the upstream
maintainer, included in Debian unstable, and was ported back to
version 3.15.2 which is available for the stable Debian GNU/Linux
2.2.

We recommend that you upgrade your procmail package immediately.
