Debian Security Advisory DSA-1728-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Florian Weimer
February 27, 2009 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : dkim-milter
Vulnerability : improper assertion
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no

It was discovered that dkim-milter, an implementation of the DomainKeys
Identified Mail protocol, may crash during DKIM verification if it
encounters a specially-crafted or revoked public key record in DNS.

The old stable distribution (etch) does not contain dkim-milter packages.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6.0.dfsg-1+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6.0.dfsg-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your dkim-milter packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
