Fedora 27 : spamassassin (2018-6ed251c42b)

High Nessus Plugin ID 117840


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.
