    | Does anyone know if this effects the Mail::SpamAssassin
    | perl libraries when used with amavisd-new?

    The bug described in
    is in the C code of the spamc program.
    It is not in the Mail::SpamAssassin Perl module.

    Amavisd-new ( ) calls
    Mail::SpamAssassin Perl module directly, and does not use spamc/spamd.
    It is unaffected by this bug.
