Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:103: spamassassin

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the spamassassin package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:103 (spamassassin).



A flaw was discovered in the way that spamd processes the virtual POP

usernames passed to it. If running with the --vpopmail and --paranoid

flags, it is possible for a remote user with the ability to connect to

the spamd daemon to execute arbitrary commands as the user running

spamd.



By default, the Spamassassin packages do not start spamd with either

of these flags and this usage is uncommon.



The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
