Mark Dowd discovered a flaw in the handling of asynchronous signals in
sendmail, a powerful, efficient, and scalable mail transport agent.

execute arbitrary code as root.
For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 8.12.3-7.2.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 8.13.4-3sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 8.13.6-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your sendmail package immediately.
