Never thought twitter was useful until this:

Y2010 bug strikes SpamAssassin (from Mirrel): http://bit.ly/6JtPsM


Sure enough:
https://issues.apache.org/SpamAssassin/show_bug.cgi?id=6269

Someone apparently never thought spamassassin would be used past 2010? ;-) So all email with dates after 1/1/2010 automagically gets spam points.

on gentoo the rule is in /usr/share/spamassassin/72_active.cf
Code:

grep DATE_PAST /usr/share/spamassassin/72_active.cf
##{ FH_DATE_PAST_20XX
header   FH_DATE_PAST_20XX      Date =~ /20[1-9][0-9]/ [if-unset: 2006]
describe FH_DATE_PAST_20XX      The date is grossly in the future.
##} FH_DATE_PAST_20XX


To fix override the rule in your local.cf file adding an override for whatever you think 'grossly in the future' means now:

Code:

nano -w /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf

#y2010 bug
##{ FH_DATE_PAST_20XX
header   FH_DATE_PAST_20XX      Date =~ /20[2-9][0-9]/ [if-unset: 2006]
describe FH_DATE_PAST_20XX      The date is grossly in the future.
##} FH_DATE_PAST_20XX


A hack to be sure, but at least you'll get the email about when it's fixed in a better way!

The fix was pushed out this morning... run sa-update and you'll pull in the change to 202X.

If I run
Code:
 sa-update --checkonly  -D 
I get something like :
Code:
...
[17179] dbg: channel: attempting channel updates.spamassassin.org
[17179] dbg: channel: update directory /var/lib/spamassassin/3.002001/updates_spamassassin_org
[17179] dbg: channel: channel cf file /var/lib/spamassassin/3.002001/updates_spamassassin_org.cf
[17179] dbg: channel: channel pre file /var/lib/spamassassin/3.002001/updates_spamassassin_org.pre
[17179] dbg: dns: 1.2.3.updates.spamassassin.org => 895075, parsed as 895075
[17179] dbg: channel: updates.spamassassin.org: update available, not downloading in checkonly mode
[17179] dbg: diag: updates complete, exiting with code 0
...
but I don't have a directory /var/lib/spamassassin ?!?

weird. i have that directory on mine.

nonetheless

Code:

sa-update --updatedir /usr/share/spamassassin -D


(or whatever is appropriate for you)

my SA is called through amavisd-new, though, and I update once a day with a quickie (ugly) script

Code:

#!/bin/bash

/usr/bin/sa-update --updatedir /usr/share/spamassassin --debug --nogpg --channel updates.spamassassin.org
/sbin/runscript /etc/init.d/amavisd stop
/usr/bin/killall -9 amavisd
/bin/rm /var/amavisd/amavisd.pid
/bin/rm /var/amavisd/amavisd.lock
/sbin/runscript /etc/init.d/amavisd start
