USN74-2 : postfix vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
postfix vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- postfix
- postfix-dev
- postfix-doc
- postfix-ldap
- postfix-mysql
- postfix-pcre
- postfix-pgsql
- postfix-tls


Description :

This is an update to the recently published Ubuntu Security Notice
USN-74-1, which fixed the delivery of arbitrary mail to any MX host
which has an IPv6 address.

Unfortunately that upgrade revealed an error in the package upgrade
system which caused package installation to fail. After the failed
upgrade the Postfix server was not started again, thus no mail was
delivered.

This new set of packages fixes the error encountered when upgrading.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- postfix-2.1.3-1ubuntu17.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- postfix-dev-2.1.3-1ubuntu17.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- postfix-doc-2.1.3-1ubuntu17.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- postfix-ldap-2.1.3-1ubuntu17.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- postfix-mysql-2.1.3-1ubuntu17.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- postfix-pcre-2.1.3-1ubuntu17.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- postfix-pgsql-2.1.3-1ubuntu17.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- postfix-tls-2.1.3-1ubuntu17.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
