SpamAssassin 2010 Bug

By Deane Barker on January 1, 2010

SpamAssassin 2010 bug : SpamAssassin has a 2010 bug.

A quick look in /usr/share/spamassassin/72active.cf turned up the rule:

header FHDATEPAST20XX Date =~ /20[1-9][0-9]/ [if-unset: 2006]

Oops. That regex matches on any year between 2010 and 2099.

I’m guessing it’s an old rule.
