Debian Security Advisory                             security () debian org

The version of sendmail that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.1
has a slight problem in the code to regenerate the aliases database.
Sendmail allowed any user to run sendmail with the -bi option to
(re)initialize the aliases database. The user could then interrupt sendmail
and leave the system with a broken aliases database.

This has been fixed in version 8.9.3-3slink1 by only allowing root
and trusted users to regenerate the aliases database.

We recommend you upgrade your sendmail package to new version.
