Description Josh Bressers 2006-06-02 09:52:42 EDT
CVE-2006-2447 spamassassin arbitrary command execution

If spamd is run with the
"-v" / "--vpopmail" switch, AND with the "-P" / "--paranoid" switch
It becomes possible to execute arbitrary commands as the user spamd is
running as.

This issue is mitigated by the fact that no imap servers as shipped
with RHEL support vpopmail.  These options are also not the default
spamd options when it is started as a service.
