[Bug 6426] New: "Use of uninitialized value in pattern match" warnings
https://issues.apache.org/SpamAssassin/show_bug.cgi?id=6426

Summary: "Use of uninitialized value in pattern match" warnings
Product: Spamassassin
Version: 3.3.1
Platform: PC
OS/Version: FreeBSD
Status: NEW
Severity: normal
Priority: P2
Component: spamassassin
AssignedTo: dev@spamassassin.apache.org
ReportedBy: bas@debian.org


I gt a lot of these error messages in my mail.log:

Apr 29 11:24:12 aegir spamd[1103]: Use of uninitialized value in pattern match
(m//) at
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.9/Mail/SpamAssassin/Plugin/URIDNSBL.pm line
925, <GEN7455> line 124.

Line 925 is the following:
next if ($tflags->{$rulename} =~ /\b(?:ips_only|domains_only)\b/);

so it seems $tflags->{$rulename} does not exist.
Debugging show that the rule triggering the error is a user-created rule, which
indeed does not declare any tflags.

I propose to change the code to:

next if (exists $tflags->{$rulename} and $tflags->{$rulename} =~
/\b(?:ips_only|domains_only)\b/);

to fix the problem. Alternatively, you could add a warning when reading the
user prefs, telling the user to add a tflags line to his rule.
