openSUSE Security Update : amavisd-new (openSUSE-2019-297)

High Nessus Plugin ID 122662


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update for amavisd-new fixes the following issues :

Security issue fixed :

- CVE-2016-1238: Workedaround a perl vulnerability by removing a trailing dot element from @INC	(bsc#987887).

Other issues addressed :

- update to version 2.11.1 (bsc#1123389).

- amavis-services: bumping up syslog level from LOG_NOTICE to LOG_ERR for a message 'PID <pid> went away', and removed redundant newlines from some log messages

- avoid warning messages 'Use of uninitialized value in subroutine entry' in Encode::MIME::Header when the $check argument is undefined

- @sa_userconf_maps has been extended to allow loading of per-recipient (or per-policy bank, or global) SpamAssassin configuration set from LDAP. For consistency with SQL a @sa_userconf_maps entry prefixed with 'ldap:' will load SpamAssassin configuration set using the load_scoreonly_ldap() method.

- add some Sanesecurity.Foxhole false positives to the default list @virus_name_to_spam_score_maps

- update amavis-milter to version 2.6.1 :

- Fixed a bug when creating amavisd-new policy bank names

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-15:Update update project.
