Check for the version of the spamassassin package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

the spamd daemon to execute arbitrary commands as the user running


By default, the Spamassassin packages do not start spamd with either

of these flags and this usage is uncommon.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
