                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
______________________________________________________________________

Package name:           sendmail
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:042
Date:                   April 1st, 2003

Affected versions:      8.2, 9.0, 9.1, Corporate Server 2.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Michal Zalweski discovered a vulnerability in sendmail versions earlier
 than 8.12.9 in the address parser, which performs insufficient bounds 
 checking in certain conditions due to a char to int conversion.  This 
 vulnerability makes it poissible for an attacker to take control of 
 sendmail and is thought to be remotely exploitable, and very likely 
 locally exploitable.  Updated packages are available with patches 
 applied (the older versions), and the new fixed version is available 
 for Mandrake Linux 9.1 users.
