Version        : 0.66.4-9+deb9u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2021-28374
Debian Bug     : 984810

The Debian courier-authlib package before 0.71.1-2 for Courier
Authentication Library creates a /run/courier/authdaemon
directory with weak permissions, allowing an attacker to read
user information. This may include a cleartext password in some
configurations. In general, it includes the user's existence,
uid and gids, home and/or Maildir directory, quota, and some
type of password information (such as a hash).

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
0.66.4-9+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your courier-authlib packages.
