                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           sendmail
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:092
Date:                   September 17th, 2003

Affected versions:      8.2, 9.0, 9.1, Corporate Server 2.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A buffer overflow vulnerability was discovered in the address parsing
 code in all versions of sendmail prior to 8.12.10 by Michal Zalewski,
 with a patch to fix the problem provided by Todd C. Miller.  This
 vulnerability seems to be remotely exploitable on Linux systems running
 on the x86 platform; the sendmail team is unsure of other platforms
 (CAN-2003-0694).
 
 Another potential buffer overflow was fixed in ruleset parsing which is
 not exploitable in the default sendmail configuration.  A problem may
 occur if non-standard rulesets recipient (2), final (4), or mailer-
 specific envelope recipients rulesets are use.  This problem was
 discovered by Timo Sirainen (CAN-2003-0681).
 
 MandrakeSoft encourages all users who use sendmail to upgrade to the
 provided packages which are patched to fix both problems.
