Description

A Denial of Service bug was discovered in SpamAssassin. An attacker could construct a particular message that would cause SpamAssassin to consume CPU resources. If a large number of these messages were sent, it could lead to a DoS. SpamAssassin 3.0.4 was released to correct this vulnerability, as well as other minor bug fixes, and is provided with this update.

For full details on the changes from previous versions of SpamAssassin to this current version, please refer to the online documentation at http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/NextRelease.
