Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The procmail packages contain a mail processing tool that can be used
to create mail servers, mailing lists, sort incoming mail into
separate folders or files, preprocess mail, start any program upon
mail arrival, or automatically forward selected incoming mail.

Security Fix(es) :

* A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in procmail's formail
utility. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted email that,
when processed by formail, could cause formail to crash or, possibly,
execute arbitrary code as the user running formail. (CVE-2017-16844)

preceding description block directly from the corresponding Red Hat
security advisory. Virtuozzo provides no description for VZLSA
advisories. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format
it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.");
