CVE-2014-3956

Priority
Low
Description
The sm_close_on_exec function in conf.c in sendmail before 8.14.9 has
arguments in the wrong order, and consequently skips setting expected
FD_CLOEXEC flags, which allows local users to access unintended
high-numbered file descriptors via a custom mail-delivery program.
