    This bug was experienced in May 1999 but wasn't reported on this channel yet. Former versions of the smtp-refuser package came with unchecked logging facility to /tmp/log. This allowed deleting arbitrary, root-owned files by any user who has write access to /tmp
    This bug was experienced in May 1999 but wasn't reported on this
    channel yet.
    
    Former versions of the smtp-refuser package came with unchecked
    logging facility to /tmp/log.  This allowed deleting arbitrary,
    root-owned files by any user who has write access to /tmp.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your smtp-refuser package.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
