    Package        : ntlmaps
    Vulnerability  : wrong permissons
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: yes
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2962
    
    Drew Parsons noticed that the post-installation script of ntlmaps, an
    NTLM authorisation proxy server, changes the permissions of the
    configuration file to be world-readable.  It contains the user name
    and password of the Windows NT system that ntlmaps connects to and,
    hence, leaks them to lokal users.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain an ntlmaps package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.9-2sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.9-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ntlmaps package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

      its next update.
