Mandrake Two vulnerabilities were discovered in the postfix MTA by Michal Zalewski.

                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           postfix
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:081
Date:                   August 4th, 2003

Affected versions:	8.2, 9.0, Corporate Server 2.1,
			Multi Network Firewall 8.2
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Two vulnerabilities were discovered in the postfix MTA by Michal
 Zalewski.  Versions prior to 1.1.12 would allow an attacker to bounce-
 scan private networks or use the daemon as a DDoS (Distributed Denial
 of Service) tool by forcing the daemon to connect to an arbitrary
 service at an arbitrary IP address and receiving either a bounce
 message or by timing.  As well, versions prior to 1.1.12 have a bug
 where a malformed envelope address can cause the queue manager to
 lock up until an entry is removed from the queue and also lock up
 the SMTP listener leading to a DoS.
 
 Postfix version 1.1.13 corrects these issues.  The provided packages
 have been patched to fix the vulnerabilities.
