Debian Security Advisory DSA-2021-2 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Giuseppe Iuculano

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : spamass-milter
Vulnerability : missing input sanitization
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id : CVE-2010-1132
Debian Bug : 573228 575019

The latest DSA for spamass-milter introduced a regression: when running
spamass-milter with -x, a zombie process is left around for every mail
received. This update corrects this problem.
For reference, the original advisory text is provided below.

It was discovered a missing input sanitization in spamass-milter, a milter
used to filter mail through spamassassin.
This allows a remote attacker to inject and execute arbitrary shell commands.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.3.1-8+lenny2.

For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution this problem
has been fixed in version 0.3.1-9.

We recommend that you upgrade your spamass-milter package.
