Please check whether you are affected by running "<prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -q spamassassin". If you have the "spamassassin" package installed and its version is affected (see above), we recommend that you immediately upgrade it (see Solution) . Solution: Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release , fetch it from the OpenPKG FTP service  or a mirror location, verify its integrity , build a corresponding binary RPM from it  and update your OpenPKG installation by applying the binary RPM . For the affected release OpenPKG 2.0, perform the following operations to permanently fix the security problem (for other releases adjust accordingly). $ ftp ftp.openpkg.org ftp> bin ftp> cd release/2.0/UPD ftp> get spamassassin-2.63-2.0.1.src.rpm ftp> bye $ <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -v --checksig spamassassin-2.63-2.0.1.src.rpm $ <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm --rebuild spamassassin-2.63-2.0.1.src.rpm $ su - # <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -Fvh <prefix>/RPM/PKG/spamassassin-2.63-2.0.1.*.rpm ________________________________________________________________________ References:  http://spamassassin.apache.org/  http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=spamassassin-announce&...  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2004-0796  http://www.openpkg.org/tutorial.html#regular-source  http://www.openpkg.org/tutorial.html#regular-binary  ftp://ftp.openpkg.org/release/2.0/UPD/spamassassin-2.63-2...  ftp://ftp.openpkg.org/release/2.0/UPD/  http://www.openpkg.org/security.html#signature ________________________________________________________________________ For security reasons, this advisory was digitally signed with the OpenPGP public key "OpenPKG <firstname.lastname@example.org>" (ID 63C4CB9F) of the OpenPKG project which you can retrieve from http://pgp.openpkg.org and hkp://pgp.openpkg.org.
