Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:058 (sendmail).

signals. This could allow a remote attacker to be able to execute arbitrary
code with the rights of the user running sendmail. The updated packages
have been patched to correct this problem via a patch provided by the Sendmail
Consortium via CERT.
