Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA305] DSA-305-1 sendmail

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-305-1 sendmail

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Paul Szabo discovered bugs in three scripts included in the sendmail
package where temporary files were created insecurely (expn,
checksendmail and doublebounce.pl). These bugs could permit an
attacker to gain the rights of a user invoking the script
(including root).
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 8.12.3-6.4.
For the old stable distribution (potato) these problems have been fixed
in version 8.9.3-26.1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 8.12.9-2.
We recommend that you update your sendmail package.
