An update that solves one vulnerability and has one errata is now available.


This update for amavisd-new fixes the following issues:
wmavisd-new was updated to version 2.11.1 (bsc#1123389):

  • removed a trailing dot element from @INC, as a workaround for a perl vulnerability CVE-2016-1238 (bsc#987887)
  • amavis-services: bumping up syslog level from LOG_NOTICE to LOG_ERR for a message "PID went away", and removed redundant newlines from some log messages
  • safe_decode() and safe_decode_utf8(): avoid warning messages "Use of uninitialized value in subroutine entry" in Encode::MIME::Header when the $check argument is undefined
  • @sa_userconf_maps has been extended to allow loading of per-recipient (or per-policy bank, or global) SpamAssassin configuration set from LDAP. For consistency with SQL a @sa_userconf_maps entry prefixed with 'ldap:' will load SpamAssassin configuration set using the load_scoreonly_ldap() method; a patch by Atanas Karashenski
  • add some Sanesecurity.Foxhole false positives to the default list @virus_name_to_spam_score_maps
  • updated some comments

Update amavis-milter to version 2.6.1:
