Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2006:017 (sendmail).


The popular MTA sendmail is vulnerable to a race condition when handling

execute commands remotely.

Sendmail was the default MTA in SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8. Later
