    Debian: DSA-1981-2: New maildrop packages fix regression

    Date 28 Jan 2010
    202
    Posted By LinuxSecurity Advisories
    The latest DSA for maildrop introduced two regressions. The maildrop program stopped working when invoked as a non-root user, such as with postfix. Also, the lenny version dropped a dependency on the courier-authlib package.

    Vulnerability  : privilege escalation
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CVE-2010-0301
    Debian Bug     : 564601
    
    The latest DSA for maildrop introduced two regressions. The maildrop
    program stopped working when invoked as a non-root user, such as with
    postfix. Also, the lenny version dropped a dependency on the
    courier-authlib package.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.4-3+lenny3.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.2-11+etch2.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.2.0-3.1.
    
    For reference, the original advisory text is below.
    
    Christoph Anton Mitterer discovered that maildrop, a mail delivery agent
    with filtering abilities, is prone to a privilege escalation issue that
    grants a user root group privileges.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your maildrop packages.
