==========================================================Ubuntu Security Notice USN-215-1   November 07, 2005
fetchmail vulnerability
CVE-2005-3088
==========================================================
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected:

fetchmailconf

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 6.2.5-8ubuntu2.2 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 6.2.5-12ubuntu1.2 (for
Ubuntu 5.04), or 6.2.5-13ubuntu3.1 (for Ubuntu 5.10).  In general, a
standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Thomas Wolff and Miloslav Trmac discovered a race condition in the
fetchmailconf program. The output configuration file was initially
created with insecure permissions, and secure permissions were applied
after writing the configuration into the file. During this time, the
file was world readable on a standard system (unless the user manually
tightened his umask setting), which could expose email passwords to
local users.
