MDKSA-2007:049: spamassassin Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the spamassassin package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:049 (spamassassin).

A bug in the way that SpamAssassin processes HTML emails containing
URIs was discovered in versions 3.1.x. A carefully crafted mail
message could make SpamAssassin consume significant amounts of CPU
resources that could delay or prevent the delivery of mail if a
number of these messages were sent at once.
SpamAssassin has been upgraded to version 3.1.8 to correct this
problem, and other upstream bugs. In addition, an invalid path setting
in for the auto_whitelist_path has been fixed for Mandriva
