    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

    Summary:

    Software Description:
    - spamassassin: Perl-based spam filter using text analysis
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that SpamAssassin incorrectly handled certain CF files.
    If a user or automated system were tricked into using a specially-crafted
    CF file, a remote attacker could possibly run arbitrary code.

    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
