This solution replies to:
- NG Firewall firmware versions 4.2.x, 5.0.x, 5.2.x
- netfence firmware versions 4.2.x

In some cases after a software update it can happen that you have not the correct permissions on the /tmp/ folder. You will get the following warning in the spam-filter log: 

Warning +0100 spamd[13413]: util: secure_tmpfile failed to create file \'/tmp/.spamassassin13413iriSVztmp\': Permission denied

If you check the rights for the directory you will get the following output: drwxr-xr-x

Please login to the concerning system via SSH and change the rights of the /tmp/ directory as below:
chmod -R 777 /tmp/
