For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories,
including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the
following sections, please visit
<URL:http://www.freebsd.org/security/>.

NOTE: The issue discussed in this advisory was reported to the FreeBSD
Security Team, and the patch which corrects it was supplied, by the
Sendmail Consortium via CERT.  Due to the limited information available
concerning the nature of the vulnerability, the FreeBSD Security Team
has not been able to evaluate the effectiveness of the fixes, nor the
possibility of other workarounds.

I.   Background

FreeBSD includes sendmail(8), a general purpose internetwork mail
routing facility, as the default Mail Transfer Agent (MTA).

II.  Problem Description

A race condition has been reported to exist in the handling by sendmail
of asynchronous signals.

III. Impact

A remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running sendmail, typically root.

IV.  Workaround

There is no known workaround other than disabling sendmail.

V.   Solution

Perform one of the following:

1) Upgrade your vulnerable system to 4-STABLE, 5-STABLE, or 6-STABLE,
or to the RELENG_6_0, RELENG_5_4, RELENG_5_3, RELENG_4_11, or
RELENG_4_10 security branch dated after the correction date.

2) To patch your present system:

The following patches have been verified to apply to FreeBSD 4.10,
4.11, 5.3, 5.4, and 6.0 systems.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

[FreeBSD 4.10]
# fetch ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/patches/SA-06:13/sendmail410.patch
# fetch ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/patches/SA-06:13/sendmail410.patch.asc

[FreeBSD 4.11 and FreeBSD 5.3]
# fetch ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/patches/SA-06:13/sendmail411.patch
# fetch ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/patches/SA-06:13/sendmail411.patch.asc

# fetch ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/patches/SA-06:13/sendmail.patch.asc

b) Execute the following commands as root:

# cd /usr/src
# patch < /path/to/patch
# cd /usr/src/lib/libsm
# make obj && make depend && make
# cd /usr/src/lib/libsmutil
# make obj && make depend && make
# cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/sendmail
# make obj && make depend && make && make install
