Damian Lukowski discovered a flaw in spamassassin, a Perl-based spam filter using text analysis. Malicious rule configuration files, possibly downloaded from an updates server, could execute arbitrary commands under multiple scenarios.

For Debian 8 jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 3.4.2-0+deb8u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your spamassassin packages.
