    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitization
    Problem-Type   : remote

    Debian Bug     : 573228 575019
    
    The latest DSA for spamass-milter introduced a regression: when running
    spamass-milter with -x, a zombie process is left around for every mail
    received. This update corrects this problem. 
    For reference, the original advisory text is provided below.
    
    It was discovered a missing input sanitization in spamass-milter, a milter
    used to filter mail through spamassassin.
    This allows a remote attacker to inject and execute arbitrary shell commands.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.3.1-8+lenny2.
    
    For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution this problem
    has been fixed in version 0.3.1-9.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your spamass-milter package.
