quote from release notes:

"Fix a buffer overflow in address parsing.  Problem detected by 
Michal Zalewski, patch from Todd C. Miller of Courtesan Consulting.

Fix a potential buffer overflow in ruleset parsing.  This problem
is not exploitable in the default sendmail configuration;
only if non-standard rulesets recipient (2), final (4), or
mailer-specific envelope recipients rulesets are used then
a problem may occur.  Problem noted by Timo Sirainen."

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-mail/sendmail upgrade to sendmail-8.2.10 as follows:

emerge sync
emerge sendmail
emerge clean
