Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:103
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : spamassassin
Date : June 14, 2006
Affected: 10.2, 2006.0, Corporate 3.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A flaw was discovered in the way that spamd processes the virtual POP
usernames passed to it. If running with the --vpopmail and --paranoid
flags, it is possible for a remote user with the ability to connect to
the spamd daemon to execute arbitrary commands as the user running
spamd.

By default, the Spamassassin packages do not start spamd with either
of these flags and this usage is uncommon.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
