    Two vulnerabilities were discovered in spamassassin, a Perl-based spam
    filter using text analysis.
    
    CVE-2018-11805
    
        Malicious rule or configuration files, possibly downloaded from an
        updates server, could execute arbitrary commands under multiple
        scenarios.
    
    CVE-2019-12420
    
        Specially crafted mulitpart messages can cause spamassassin to use
        excessive resources, resulting in a denial of service.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
    in version 3.4.2-1~deb9u2.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.4.2-1+deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your spamassassin packages.
