|Title:||Sendmail 'decode' flaw|
The remote SMTP server seems to pipe mail
sent to the 'decode' alias to a program.
There have been in the past a lot of security
problems regarding this, as it would allow
an attacker to overwrite arbitrary files
on the remote server.
We suggest you deactivate this alias.
Solution : remove the 'decode' line in /etc/aliases.
Risk factor : High
