Fedora EPEL 4 updates-testing report



The following builds have been pushed to Fedora EPEL 4 updates-testing

    spamass-milter-0.3.1-18.el4

Details about builds:


================================================================================
 spamass-milter-0.3.1-18.el4 (FEDORA-EPEL-2010-2473)
 Milter (mail filter) for spamassassin
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update includes a fix for a problem where if the milter is running using
the "-x" option to expand aliases before passing inbound mail through
SpamAssassin, a malicious client using a carefully-crafted SMTP session could
execute arbitrary code on the mail server. The fix avoids the use of a shell in
the alias expansion and hence there is no longer a problem with having to
sanitize input from the client.    No CVE number has yet been assigned to this
problem, which is tracked upstream at https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/?29136
The update also contains improved Received-header-generation for message
submission and a fix for a problem where the milter would erroneously log
warnings about the mail server's configuration when the first message from a
non-authenticated client passed through. As part of the fix for this issue, the
required milter macro configuration for the mail server has changed slightly:
see the README file included in the package for details.
