./mail/exim, The Exim mail transfer agent, a replacement for sendmail

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.89nb4, Package name: exim-4.89nb4, Maintainer: abs

Exim is a mail transport agent (MTA) developed at the University of Cambridge
for use on Unix systems connected to the Internet. It is freely available
under the terms of the GNU General Public Licence. In style it is similar to
Smail 3, but its facilities are more extensive, and in particular it has
options for verifying incoming sender and recipient addresses, for refusing
mail from specified hosts, networks, or senders, and for controlling mail

This build of exim has the following non-default features enabled:


The following default feature is disabled by default, but may be enabled by

 1. Allow relative config file names for ".include"

 2. A main-section config option "debug_store" to control the checks on
    variable locations during store-reset.  Normally false but can be enabled
    when a memory corrution issue is suspected on a production system.

Log message:
Update exim to 4.88
Security update to address CVE-2016-9963

Exim version 4.88
JH/01 Use SIZE on MAIL FROM in a cutthrough connection, if the destination
      supports it and a size is available (ie. the sending peer gave us one).

JH/02 The obsolete acl condition "demime" is removed (finally, after ten
      years of being deprecated). The replacements are the ACLs
      acl_smtp_mime and acl_not_smtp_mime.

JH/03 Upgrade security requirements imposed for hosts_try_dane: previously
      a downgraded non-dane trust-anchor for the TLS connection (CA-style)
      or even an in-clear connection were permitted.  Now, if the host lookup
      was dnssec and dane was requested then the host is only used if the
      TLSA lookup succeeds and is dnssec.  Further hosts (eg. lower priority
      MXs) will be tried (for hosts_try_dane though not for hosts_require_dane)
      if one fails this test.
      This means that a poorly-configured remote DNS will make it incommunicado;
      but it protects against a DNS-interception attack on it.

JH/04 Bug 1810: make continued-use of an open smtp transport connection
      non-noisy when a race steals the message being considered.

JH/05 If main configuration option tls_certificate is unset, generate a
      self-signed certificate for inbound TLS connections.

JH/06 Bug 165: hide more cases of password exposure - this time in expansions
      in rewrites and routers.

JH/07 Retire gnutls_require_mac et.al.  These were nonfunctional since 4.80
      and logged a warning sing 4.83; now they are a configuration file error.

JH/08 Bug 1836: Fix crash in VRFY handling when handed an unqualified name
      (lacking @domain).  Apply the same qualification processing as RCPT.

JH/09 Bug 1804: Avoid writing msglog files when in -bh or -bhc mode.

JH/10 Support ${sha256:} applied to a string (as well as the previous

JH/11 Cutthrough: avoid using the callout hints db on a verify callout when
      a cutthrough deliver is pending, as we always want to make a connection.
      This also avoids re-routing the message when later placing the cutthrough
      connection after a verify cache hit.
      Do not update it with the verify result either.

JH/12 Cutthrough: disable when verify option success_on_redirect is used, and
      when routing results in more than one destination address.

JH/13 Cutthrough: expand transport dkim_domain option when testing for dkim
      signing (which inhibits the cutthrough capability).  Previously only
      the presence of an option was tested; now an expansion evaluating as
      empty is permissible (obviously it should depend only on data available
      when the cutthrough connection is made).

JH/14 Fix logging of errors under PIPELINING.  Previously the log line giving
      the relevant preceding SMTP command did not note the pipelining mode.

JH/15 Fix counting of empty lines in $body_linecount and $message_linecount.
      Previously they were not counted.

JH/16 DANE: treat a TLSA lookup response having all non-TLSA RRs, the same
      as one having no matching records.  Previously we deferred the message
      that needed the lookup.

JH/17 Fakereject: previously logged as a norml message arrival "<="; now
      distinguished as "(=".

JH/18 Bug 1867: make the fail_defer_domains option on a dnslookup router work
      for missing MX records.  Previously it only worked for missing A records.

JH/19 Bug 1850: support Radius libraries that return REJECT_RC.

JH/20 Bug 1872: Ensure that acl_smtp_notquit is run when the connection drops
      after the data-go-ahead and data-ack.  Patch from Jason Betts.

JH/21 Bug 1846: Send DMARC forensic reports for reject and quaratine results,
      even for a "none" policy.  Patch from Tony Meyer.

JH/22 Fix continued use of a connection for further deliveries. If a port was
      specified by a router, it must also match for the delivery to be

JH/23 Bug 1874: fix continued use of a connection for further deliveries.
      When one of the recipients of a message was unsuitable for the connection
      (has no matching addresses), we lost track of needing to mark it
      deferred.  As a result mail would be lost.

JH/24 Bug 1832: Log EHLO response on getting conn-close response for HELO.

JH/25 Decoding ACL controls is now done using a binary search; the source code
      takes up less space and should be simpler to maintain.  Merge the ACL
      condition decode tables also, with similar effect.

JH/26 Fix problem with one_time used on a redirect router which returned the
      parent address unchanged.  A retry would see the parent address marked as
      delivered, so not attempt the (identical) child.  As a result mail would
      be lost.

JH/27 Fix a possible security hole, wherein a process operating with the Exim
      UID can gain a root shell.  Credit to http://www.halfdog.net/ for
      discovery and writeup.  Ubuntu bug 1580454; no bug raised against Exim
      itself :(

JH/28 Enable {spool,log} filesystem space and inode checks as default.
      Main config options check_{log,spool}_{inodes,space} are now
      100 inodes, 10MB unless set otherwise in the configuration.

JH/29 Fix the connection_reject log selector to apply to the connect ACL.
      Previously it only applied to the main-section connection policy

JH/30 Bug 1897: fix callouts connection fallback from TLS to cleartext.

PP/01 Changed default Diffie-Hellman parameters to be Exim-specific, created
      by me.  Added RFC7919 DH primes as an alternative.

PP/02 Unbreak build via pkg-config with new hash support when crypto headers
      are not in the system include path.

JH/31 Fix longstanding bug with aborted TLS server connection handling.  Under
      GnuTLS, when a session startup failed (eg because the client disconnected)
      Exim did stdio operations after fclose.  This was exposed by a recent
      change which nulled out the file handle after the fclose.

JH/32 Bug 1909: Fix OCSP proof verification for cases where the proof is
      signed directly by the cert-signing cert, rather than an intermediate
      OCSP-signing cert.  This is the model used by LetsEncrypt.

JH/33 Bug 1914: Ensure socket is nonblocking before draining after SMTP QUIT.

HS/01 Fix leak in verify callout under GnuTLS, about 3MB per recipient on
      an incoming connection.

HS/02 Bug 1802: Do not half-close the connection after sending a request
      to rspamd.

HS/03 Use "auto" as the default EC curve parameter. For OpenSSL < 1.0.2
      fallback to "prime256v1".

JH/34 SECURITY: Use proper copy of DATA command in error message.
      Could leak key material.  Remotely explaoitable.  CVE-2016-9963.
