Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA024] DSA-024-1 cron

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-024-1 cron

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The FreeBSD team has found a bug in the way new crontabs
were handled which permited malicious users to display arbitrary crontab files
on the local system. This only affects valid crontab files so it can't be used to
get access to /etc/shadow or something. crontab files are not especially secure
anyway, as there are other ways they can leak. No passwords or similar
sensitive data should be in there. We recommend you upgrade your cron
packages.
