                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           sendmail
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:028
Date:                   March 3rd, 2003

Affected versions:      7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 9.0, Corporate Server 2.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was discovered in sendmail by Mark Dowd of ISS X-Force
 that involves mail header manipulation that can result in a remote
 user gaining root access to the system running the vulnerable 
 sendmail.
 
 Patches supplied by the sendmail development team have been applied to
 correct this issue.  MandrakeSoft encourages all users who have chosen
 to use sendmail (as opposed to the default MTA, postfix) to upgrade to
 this version of sendmail immediately.
