Reply-To:       security@debian.org
To:     debian-security-announce@lists.debian.org
Subject:        [SECURITY] [DSA-093-1] postfix memory exhaustion
Date:   12 Dec 2001 17:23:38 +0100      


Package        : postfix
Problem type   : remote DoS
Debian-specific: no

Wietse Venema reported he found a denial of service vulnerability in
postfix. The SMTP session log that postfix keeps for debugging purposes
could grow to an unreasonable size.

This has been fixed in version 0.0.19991231pl11-2.
