Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/sendmail-8.13.7-i486-1_slack10.2.tgz:
  Upgraded to sendmail-8.13.7.
  Fixes a potential denial of service problem caused by excessive recursion
  leading to stack exhaustion when attempting delivery of a malformed MIME
  message.  This crashes sendmail's queue processing daemon, which in turn
  can lead to two problems:  depending on the settings, these crashed
  processes may create coredumps which could fill a drive partition; and
  such a malformed message in the queue will cause queue processing to
  cease when the message is reached, causing messages that are later in
  the queue to not be processed.
