Note that this is not the same issue as CVE-2007-1536. This program is being used by amavisd-new even when virus scanning is disabled, so it is heartly recommended to use the most recent version (currently at 4.21), available from ftp://ftp.astron.com/pub/file.

2007-04-23: amavisd-new-2.5.0gz 2007-03-22: An exploitable security problem in file(1) utility version 4.19 and older has been found by Jean-Sébastien Guay-Leroux.

When calling of Mail:: Spam Assassin (SA) is enabled, it calls SA only once per message regardless of the number of recipients, and tries very hard to correctly honour per-recipient preferences, such as pass/reject, check/nocheck, spam levels, and inserting spam-related mail header fields.

amavisd-new benefits from the use of Perl module Net:: Server, which offers a fast pre-forked multichild process control.

It is written in Perl, ensuring high reliability, portability and maintainability.
