openSUSE 10 Security Update : spamassassin (spamassassin-1904)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27449
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update fixes the following security problem in SpamAssassin :
- CVE-2006-2447: SpamAssassin when running with vpopmail and the paranoid (-P) switch, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands via a crafted message that is not properly handled when invoking spamd with the virtual pop username.
At the same time we upgraded SpamAssassin to version 3.1.3, bringing lots of bug fixes and new rules.
Please make sure you verify that it still works with your configuration.
Also included is now 'sa-update', a rule update script. For this script to work make sure that the perl-IO-ZLib and perl-libwww-perl packages are installed.
SolutionUpdate the affected spamassassin packages.
