Sendmail Update for Debian
Posted on: 04/05/2003 01:44 PM

The sendmail security update is now available for Debian GNU/Linux

Michal Zalewski discovered a buffer overflow, triggered by a char to int conversion, in the address parsing code in sendmail, a widely used powerful, efficient, and scalable mail transport agent. This problem is potentially remotely exploitable.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 8.12.3-6.2.

For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed in version 8.9.3-26.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 8.12.9-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your sendmail packages.
