Description of problem:
Sendmail, Inc., and the Sendmail Consortium announce the availability of
sendmail 8.13.8. It fixes some problems introduced in 8.13.7, as well as
some other bugs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
A simple upgrade (new versions in the spec file) did it for me - without
any patch merging.
Upgrade to 8.13.8... ;-)
Resolving this bug report by upgrading should resolve bug #198099.
Okay...while doing nothing instead of my expected result, this bug now got
a security bug ;-) Secunia and FrSIRT are reporting possible DoS cases for
sendmail < 8.13.8. Please update Rawhide to 8.13.8 soon...
Here is the direct link to that FrSIRT advisory:
