Insight

Insight

(CVE-2011-1764) The oldstable distribution (lenny) is not affected by this problem because it does not contain DKIM support. For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 4.72-6+squeeze1. For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 4.75-3.
