- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : sendmail
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem type : remote

CVE ID : CVE-2006-1173
CERT advisory : VU#146718
BugTraq ID : 18433
Debian Bug : 373801 380258

Frank Sheiness discovered that a MIME conversion routine in sendmail,
a powerful, efficient, and scalable mail transport agent, could be
tricked by a specially crafted mail to perform an endless recursion.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 8.13.4-3sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 8.13.7-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your sendmail package.
