Updated spamassassin packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
SpamAssassin provides a way to reduce unsolicited commercial email (spam) from incoming email.
- The rules using the "rawbody" test did not always return a match because SpamAssassin split the raw data into 1-2kB size parts. With this update, a note has been added to the Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf documentation, addressing the limitations resulting from this bug.
- Previously, a bug in the parser used the wrong data to detect URLs between HTML tags. As a consequence, SpamAssassin did not always detect HTTP(S) URL multiline mismatches in email messages. This bug is now fixed and SpamAssassin properly detects multiline mismatches.
Users of spamassassin are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
