    Package        : sendmail
    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0058
    CERT advisory  : VU#834865
    
    Mark Dowd discovered a flaw in the handling of asynchronous signals in
    sendmail, a powerful, efficient, and scalable mail transport agent.
    This allows a remote attacker may to exploit a race condition to
    execute arbitrary code as root.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 8.12.3-7.2.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 8.13.4-3sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 8.13.6-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sendmail package immediately.
