./security/amavisd-new, Daemonized interface between MTA and content checkers

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.6.4, Package name: amavisd-new-2.6.4, Maintainer: jdunn

amavisd-new is an interface between message transfer agent (MTA) and
one or more content checkers, e.g. virus scanners, SpamAssassin, etc.
It is a performance-enhanced and feature-enriched version of amavisd
(which in turn is a daemonized version of AMaViS or amavis-perl).

amavisd-new is normally positioned at or near a central mailer, not
necessarily where user's mailboxes and final delivery takes place. If
you are looking for fully per-user configurable and/or low-message-rate
solution to be placed at the final stage of mail delivery (e.g. called
from procmail), there may be other solutions more appropriate for your

MESSAGE.milter [+/-]

Log message:
Changes 2.6.4:
Bug Fixes
* amavisd failed to start when spam scanning was disabled either
  by @bypass_spam_checks_maps=(1) or by @spam_scanners=(), giving:
    Can't locate object method "new" via package \ 
  As a workaround one could use a @spam_scanners=(undef) to disable spam
* several decoders failed to propagate "Exceeded storage quota" exception,
  so the protection of AV scanners against mail bombs was ineffective;
  reported by Jorgen Lundman;
* milter usage (AM.PDP): verbatim header edits inserted a header body of
  "1" instead of the correct string
* updated AV entry for BitDefender's bdscan to recognize tabs around
  a colon in its output; contributed by Steve;
* fix parsing of a combined result from DSPAM (option --classify), as
  earlier versions of DSPAM did not include a signature with a combined
  result line; problem reported by Marijan Vidmar;
New Features
* provide a true SNMP agent and a MIB, facilitating monitoring the health
  of a content filtering system, its performance and mail characteristics;
* a new AV interface to SMTP-based antivirus scanners;
* allow customizing SMTP-status response reason text for blocked messages;
* prevent inserting fake copies of certain important mail header fields
  without breaking a DKIM signature;

Log message:
PkgSrc changes:
  - removed packages p5-IO-Compress-Base, p5-IO-Compress-Zlib,
    p5-IO-Compress-Bzip2 and p5-Compress-Zlib because they are
    merged into p5-IO-Compress
  - Updated dependend packages to depend on p5-IO-Compress
    and bump PKGREVISION

Upstream changes:
  2.017 30 March 2009

      * Merged IO-Compress-Base, IO-Compress-Bzip2, IO-Compress-Zlib &
        Compress-Zlib into IO-Compress.
      * The interface to Compress-Raw-Zlib now uses the new LimitOutput
        feature. This will make all of the zlib-related IO-Compress modules
        less greedy in their memory consumption.
      * Removed MAN3PODS from Makefile.PL
      * A few changes to get the test harness to work on VMS courtesy of
        Craig. A. Berry.
      * IO::Compress::Base & IO::Uncompress::Base
        Downgraded some croaks in the constructors to just set $! (by letting
        the code attempt to open a file and fail).
        This makes the behavior more consistent to a standard open.
        [RT #42657]
      * IO::Uncompress::Base
        Doing a seek with MultiStream could drop some of the uncompressed
        data. Fixed.
      * IO::Compress::Zip
        - Fixed problem with the uncompressed & uncompressed fields when
          zip64 is enabled. They were set to 0x0000FFFF instead of
          0xFFFFFFFF. Also the ZIP64 extra field was 4 bytes short.
          Problem spotted by Dino Chiesa.
      * IO::Uncompress::Unzip
        - use POSIX::mktime instead of Time::Local::timelocal to convert
          the zip DOS time field into Unix time.
      * Compress::Zlib
        - Documented Compress::Zlib::zlib_version()

Update amavisd-new to 2.6.2, maintainer update request by PR 40303.

amavisd-new-2.6.2 release notes


- bounce killer: improved detection of nonstandard bounces;
- bounces to be killed no longer waste SpamAssassin time;
- tool to convert dkim-filter keysfile into amavisd configuration;
- compatibility with SpamAssassin 3.3 (CVS head) regained;
- rewritten and expanded documentation section on DKIM signing and
  verification in amavisd-new-docs.html;


- apart from small differences in logging and notifications, the
  version 2.6.2 is compatible with 2.6.1, with its configuration file
  and its environment;

- virus scanner entries were updated (as described below, most notably by
  adding a regexp flag m), so be sure to update existing configuration file;
  updated virus scanner entries can be used with 2.6.1 too;

- the %sql_clause default has changed in detail (see below), if its value
  is overridden in a configuration file the setting may need updating;
