    Package        : spamassassin
    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2447
    
    A vulnerability has been discoverd in SpamAssassin, a Perl-based spam
    filter using text analysis, that can allow remote attackers to execute
    arbitrary commands.  This problem only affects systems where spamd is
    reachable via the internet and used with vpopmail virtual users, via
    the "-v" / "--vpopmail" switch, and with the "-P" / "--paranoid"
    switch which is not the default setting on Debian.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.0.3-2sarge1.
    
    For the volatile archive for the stable distribution (sarge) this
    problem has been fixed in version 3.1.0a-0volatile3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.1.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your spamd package.
