Fedora 27 : spamassassin (2018-6ed251c42b)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 117840


New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fixed some small bugs in the previous package: Initial rules now have the correct version, sought channel config is dropped (since it doesn't exist anymore) and build / runtime deps adjusted.


Update to 3.4.2. Fixes CVE-2017-15705, CVE-2018-11780 and CVE-2018-11781 along with many other bugfixes and improvements. See https://www.mail-archive.com/[email protected]/msg04823.html for more information.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected spamassassin package.
