    It was discovered that postfix-policyd, an anti-spam plugin for postfix,
    didn't correctly bounds-test incoming SMTP commands potentially allowing
    the remote exploitation of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    1.80-2.1etch1.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge), this package was not present.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem was fixed in version
    1.80-2.2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your postfix-policyd package.
