|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: spamdyke: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201203-01)
Date: March 06, 2012
A buffer overflow in spamdyke might allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code.
spamdyke is a drop-in connection-time spam filter for qmail.
Vulnerable: < 4.3.0
Unaffected: >= 4.3.0
Architectures: All supported architectures
Boundary errors related to the "snprintf()" and "vsnprintf()" functions
in spamdyke could cause a buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code or cause a
Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All spamdyke users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-filter/spamdyke-4.3.0"
