Package              : spamassassin
Version              : 3.3.2-5+deb7u3
Importance           : medium

Spamassassin, a spam filter, enables the checking of several "block
lists" by default, including the Abusive Host Block List, or AHBL. The
AHBL has now been shut down by its providers and responds to queries
for any IP address by indicating that it is listed, thus causing
spamassassin to raise the spam score for all mail being checked.

This updates resolves this issue by removing the rules for the AHBL.

Note that if automatic updates to spamassassin's rules are enabled then
the use of the abhl.org list has already been disabled via an upstream

If you use spamassassin, we recommend that you upgrade to this version,
particularly if you have not enabled automatic rule updates.
