Vulnerability Assessment Details
Check for the version of the spamassassin package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-428 (spamassassin).
SpamAssassin provides you with a way to reduce if not completely
Unsolicited Commercial Email (SPAM) from your incoming email. It can
be invoked by a MDA such as sendmail or postfix, or can be called from
a procmail script, .forward file, etc. It uses a genetic-algorithm
evolved scoring system to identify messages which look spammy, then
adds headers to the message so they can be filtered by the user's mail
reading software. This distribution includes the spamd/spamc
which create a server that considerably speeds processing of mail.
To enable spamassassin, if you are receiving mail locally, simply add
this line to your ~/.procmailrc:
To filter spam for all users, add that line to /etc/procmailrc
(creating if necessary).
Important update for a Denial of Service vulnerability, plus more
bug fixes from upstream. More details available at:
