Description:

This update for amavisd-new fixes the following issues:
wmavisd-new was updated to version 2.11.1 (bsc#1123389):

  o removed a trailing dot element from @INC, as a workaround for a perl
    vulnerability CVE-2016-1238 (bsc#987887)
  o amavis-services: bumping up syslog level from LOG_NOTICE to LOG_ERR for a
    message "PID went away", and removed redundant newlines from some log
    messages
  o safe_decode() and safe_decode_utf8(): avoid warning messages "Use of
    uninitialized value in subroutine entry" in Encode::MIME::Header when the
    $check argument is undefined
  o @sa_userconf_maps has been extended to allow loading of per-recipient (or
    per-policy bank, or global) SpamAssassin configuration set from LDAP. For
    consistency with SQL a @sa_userconf_maps entry prefixed with 'ldap:' will
    load SpamAssassin configuration set using the load_scoreonly_ldap() method;
    a patch by Atanas Karashenski
  o add some Sanesecurity.Foxhole false positives to the default list
    @virus_name_to_spam_score_maps
