Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:092: 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-2003:092 (sendmail).


A buffer overflow vulnerability was discovered in the address parsing code in
all versions of sendmail prior to 8.12.10 by Michal Zalewski, with a patch to
fix the problem provided by Todd C. Miller. This vulnerability seems to be
remotely exploitable on Linux systems running on the x86 platform
the sendmail
team is unsure of other platforms (CVE-2003-0694).
Another potential buffer overflow was fixed in ruleset parsing which is not
exploitable in the default sendmail configuration. A problem may occur if
non-standard rulesets recipient (2), final (4), or mailer- specific envelope
recipients rulesets are use. This problem was discovered by Timo Sirainen
(CVE-2003-0681).
MandrakeSoft encourages all users who use sendmail to upgrade to the provided
packages which are patched to fix both problems.
