    Package        : qpopper
    Vulnerability  : missing privilege release
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE IDs        : CAN-2005-1151 CAN-2005-1152
    
    Two bugs have been discovered in qpopper, an enhanced Post Office
    Protocol (POP3) server.  The Common Vulnerability and Exposures
    project identifies the following problems:
    
    CAN-2005-1151
    
        Jens Steube discovered that while processing local files owned or
        provided by a normal user privileges weren't dropped, which could
        lead to the overwriting or creation of arbitrary files as root.
    
    CAN-2005-1152
    
        The upstream developers noticed that qpopper could be tricked to
        creating group- or world-writable files.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.4-2.woody.5.
    
    For the testing distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.5-4sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed in
    version 4.0.5-4sarge1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your qpopper package.
