 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:190
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : postfix
 Date    : September 10, 2008
 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability in Postfix 2.4 and later was discovered, when
 running on Linux kernel 2.6, where a local user could cause a denial
 of service due to Postfix leaking the epoll file descriptor when
 executing non-Postfix commands (CVE-2008-3889).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
