Description Quality Assurance univentionstaff 2019-12-17 18:57:19 CET
New Debian spamassassin 3.4.2-1~deb9u2 fixes:
This update addresses the following issues:
* In Apache SpamAssassin before 3.4.3, nefarious CF files can be configured  to run system commands without any output or errors. With this, exploits  can be injected in a number of scenarios. In addition to upgrading to SA  3.4.3, we recommend that users should only use update channels or 3rd party  .cf files from trusted places. (CVE-2018-11805)
* In Apache SpamAssassin before 3.4.3, a message can be crafted in a way to  use excessive resources. Upgrading to SA 3.4.3 as soon as possible is the  recommended fix but details will not be shared publicly. (CVE-2019-12420)
