Those running the "sa-update" daily cron job are not affected by this as the RFC-ignorant rules were removed upstream already. The base package would still require to be updated for installations not using the sa-update facility.

This was fixed upstream, as mentioned in the upstream bug this is linked to. What might not be obvious from that bug is that you get the fix by running sa-update, to get an updated set of rules, which you should be doing daily from cron anyway. So there is nothing that needs to be done to the ubuntu packaging (for any 3.3.0 or newer release).

You can verify by making sure these two rules are not in the rules you're using:
DNS_FROM_RFC_BOGUSMX
DNS_FROM_RFC_DSN

In /var/lib/spamassassin/3.004000/updates_spamassassin_org .

Not everyone runs S.A.-update, so we try to fix these in the Ubuntu package too.

I didn't see your comment about updating the base package before my comment / status change. I have no objection to you re-opening it for that. Just seems like it would be pretty low priority. Are there people running spamassassin without running sa-update? If so, why?

Darxus (darxus) wrote :

I keep lagging behind on comments just enough to be maximally annoying, sorry.

There's actually more rules form RFC Ignorant:

rules/active.list:DNS_FROM_RFC_BOGUSMX
rules/active.list:DNS_FROM_RFC_DSN
rules/active.list:__DNS_FROM_RFC_ABUSE
rules/active.list:__DNS_FROM_RFC_POST
rules/active.list:__DNS_FROM_RFC_WHOIS
