Fedora Legacy Test Update Notification
FEDORALEGACY-2006-186277
Bugzilla https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=186277
2006-03-22
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : sendmail
Versions    : rh73: sendmail-8.12.11-4.22.9.legacy
Versions    : rh9: sendmail-8.12.11-4.24.1.legacy
Versions    : fc1: sendmail-8.12.11-4.25.1.legacy
Versions    : fc2: sendmail-8.12.11-4.26.legacy
Versions    : fc3: sendmail-8.13.1-3.legacy
Summary     : A widely used Mail Transport Agent (MTA).
Description :
The Sendmail program is a very widely used Mail Transport Agent (MTA).
MTAs send mail from one machine to another. Sendmail is not a client
program, which you use to read your email. Sendmail is a
behind-the-scenes program which actually moves your email over
networks or the Internet to where you want it to go.

If you ever need to reconfigure Sendmail, you will also need to have
the sendmail.cf package installed. If you need documentation on
Sendmail, you can install the sendmail-doc package.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

An updated tar package that fixes a flaw in the handling of asynchronous 
signals.

A flaw in the handling of asynchronous signals was discovered in Sendmail.
A remote attacker may be able to exploit a race condition to execute
arbitrary code as root. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
assigned the name CVE-2006-0058 to this issue.

By default on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 and later, Sendmail is configured 
to only accept connections from the local host. Therefore only users who have
configured Sendmail to listen to remote hosts would be able to be remotely
exploited by this vulnerability.

In order to correct this issue for RHL 7.3 users, it was necessary to upgrade 
the version of Sendmail from 8.11 as originally shipped to Sendmail 8.12.11 
with the addition of the security patch supplied by Sendmail Inc. This 
erratum provides updated packages based on Sendmail 8.12 with a compatibility 
mode enabled as provided by Red Hat for RHEL 2.1. After updating to these 
packages, users should pay close attention to their sendmail logs to ensure 
that the upgrade completed sucessfully.

In order to correct this issue for RHL 9 and FC1 users, it was necessary to 
upgrade the version of Sendmail from 8.12.8 and 8.12.10 respectively to 
8.12.11 with the addition of the security patch supplied by Sendmail Inc.  
After updating to these packages, users should pay close attention to their 
sendmail logs to ensure that the upgrade completed sucessfully.

For Fedora Core 3 users, the patch supplied by Sendmail Inc. applies cleanly 
to the latest sendmail package previously released for Fedora Core 3.

Users of Sendmail should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
replacement backported patch to correct this issue.
