Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA485] DSA-485-1 ssmtp

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-485-1 ssmtp

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Max Vozeler discovered two format string vulnerabilities in ssmtp, a
simple mail transport agent. Untrusted values in the functions die()
and log_event() were passed to printf-like functions as format
strings. These vulnerabilities could potentially be exploited by a
remote mail relay to gain the rights of the ssmtp process
(including potentially root).
For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem will be fixed
in version 2.50.6.1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you update your ssmtp package.
