The updated packages fix security vulnerabilities:

In Apache SpamAssassin before 3.4.3, nefarious CF files can be configured
to run system commands without any output or errors. With this, exploits
can be injected in a number of scenarios. In addition to upgrading to SA
3.4.3, we recommend that users should only use update channels or 3rdparty
.cf files from trusted places. (CVE-2018-11805)

In Apache SpamAssassin before 3.4.3, a message can be crafted in a way to
use excessive resources. Upgrading to SA 3.4.3 as soon as possible is the
recommended fix but details will not be shared publicly. (CVE-2019-12420)
