Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : spamassassin (MDKSA-2007:049)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A bug in the way that SpamAssassin processes HTML emails containing
URIs was discovered in versions 3.1.x. A carefully crafted mail
message could make SpamAssassin consume significant amounts of CPU
resources that could delay or prevent the delivery of mail if a number
of these messages were sent at once.

SpamAssassin has been upgraded to version 3.1.8 to correct this
problem, and other upstream bugs. In addition, an invalid path setting
in local.cf for the auto_whitelist_path has been fixed for Mandriva
2007.0.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3

CVSS Temporal Score : 3.7
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
