Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2002:083: sendmail

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the sendmail package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:083 (sendmail).


A vulnerability was discovered by zen-parse and Pedram Amini in the sendmail
MTA. They found two ways to exploit smrsh, an application intended as a
replacement for the sh shell for use with sendmail
the first by inserting
specially formatted commands in the ~/.forward file and secondly by calling
smrsh directly with special options. These can be exploited to give users with
no shell account, or those not permitted to execute certain programs or
commands, the ability to bypass these restrictions.
