Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2005:033: 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 SUSE-SA:2005:033 (spamassassin).


The anti spam tool SpamAssassin was prone to a denial-of-service
attack. A remote attacker could craft a MIME E-Mail message that
would waste a lot of CPU cycles parsing the Content-Type header.

This is tracked by the Mitre CVE ID CVE-2005-1266.

Only SUSE Linux 9.2 and 9.3 are affected, since they include the 3.x
version of spamassassin. Older versions are not affected.
