Package        : dkim-milter
Vulnerability  : improper assertion
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

It was discovered that dkim-milter, an implementation of the DomainKeys
Identified Mail protocol, may crash during DKIM verification if it
encounters a specially-crafted or revoked public key record in DNS.

The old stable distribution (etch) does not contain dkim-milter packages.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6.0.dfsg-1+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6.0.dfsg-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your dkim-milter packages.
