Details

It was discovered that SpamAssassin incorrectly handled certain CF files.
If a user or automated system were tricked into using a specially-crafted
CF file, a remote attacker could possibly run arbitrary code.

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 19.10

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
