Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:086: 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-2003:086 (sendmail).


A vulnerability was discovered in all 8.12.x versions of sendmail up to and
including 8.12.8. Due to wrong initialization of RESOURCE_RECORD_T structures,
if sendmail receives a bad DNS reply it will call free() on random addresses
which usually causes sendmail to crash.
These updated packages are patched to fix the problem.
