Updated procmail packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, and 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important security
impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the
References section.

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.
