Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'procmail'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'procmail'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The procmail program is used for local mail delivery. In addition to just
delivering mail, procmail can be used for automatic filtering, presorting,
and other mail handling jobs.

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in procmail's formail utility.
A remote attacker could send an email with specially crafted headers that,
when processed by formail, could cause procmail to crash or, possibly,
execute arbitrary code as the user running formail. (CVE-2014-3618)

All procmail users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.

Affected Software/OS:
procmail on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
