Two vulnerabilities were discovered in spamassassin, a Perl-based spam filter using text analysis.

CVE-2018-11805

Malicious rule or configuration files, possibly downloaded from an
updates server, could execute arbitrary commands under multiple
scenarios.

CVE-2019-12420

Specially crafted mulitpart messages can cause spamassassin to use

We recommend that you upgrade your spamassassin packages.
