Mandriva: Updated spamassassin packages fix vulnerability Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake 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.

 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.
