Spamassassin Y2K10 Rule Bug


A bug fixed for Y2K in spamassassin unfortunately left another bug for
2010. This caused a rule FH_DATE_PAST_20XX to flag for every email sent
in 2010.

Depending on how your rules are structured, this could lead to mails
being marked as spam.

Spamassassin has a patch available which will fix this error. If you
cannot run sa-update to install the patch, you can disable this check by

score FH_DATE_PAST_20XX 0

Security update release of Sendmail 8.14.4


Sendmail has released a new version which fixes a few security bugs
surrounding certificates and encryption. Various other bugs were fixed
as well.

It is recommended that vulnerable versions of Sendmail be updated to the
latest copy. As of this writing, RedHat has not officially released an
update, but will probably release soon.


Multiple vulnerabilities in Wireshark version 0.9.0 to 1.2.4


"It may be possible to make Wireshark crash remotely or by convincing
someone to read a malformed packet trace file."

There were three security bugs fixed in version 1.2.5 of Wireshark: SMB
and SMB2 dissectors, IPMI dissector and Daintree SNA file parser.

It is recommended that users upgrade their version of Wireshark to 1.2.5.

Mozilla patches critical, high-risk Firefox vulnerabilities


"Mozilla has shipped Firefox 3.5.6 with patches for at least 11
documented security vulnerabilities."

It is recommended that you update your Firefox to the latest version to
fix these issues.

It should be noted, updating to 3.5.6 on my machine broke my Profile.
It could be related to an add-on that I have and may not affect you or
your users. To fix, I created a new profile from scratch.
