Description

A vulnerability was discovered in all 8.12.x versions of sendmail up to and including 8.12.8. Due to wrong initialization of RESOURCE_RECORD_T structures, if sendmail receives a bad DNS reply it will call free() on random addresses which usually causes sendmail to crash.

These updated packages are patched to fix the problem.
