Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Jean-Samuel Reynaud noticed a programming error in the IPv6 handling
code of Postfix when /proc/net/if_inet6 is not available (which is the
case in Ubuntu since Postfix runs in a chroot). If 'permit_mx_backup'
was enabled in the 'smtpd_recipient_restrictions', Postfix turned into
an open relay, i. e. erroneously permitted the delivery of arbitrary
mail to any MX host which has an IPv6 address.
Update the affected packages.
