2018-09-16: SpamAssassin 3.4.2 has been released! This release contains numerous tweaks and bug fixes over the past three and 1/2 years including:

  • sa-update now uses SHA-256 & SHA-512 hashing to verify rule updates;
  • 4 new plugins; and
  • Four CVE security bug fixes: CVE-2017-15705, CVE-2016-1238, CVE-2018-11780 & CVE-2018-11781.


No, we will stick with Ubuntu packages for as long as possible. By using Ubuntu packages we don’t reinvent the wheel of configuring it, checking for security updates, etc.
