 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDKSA-2006:190
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : mutt
 Date    : October 27, 2006
 Affected: 2006.0, 2007.0, Corporate 3.0
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 A race condition in the safe_open function in the Mutt mail client
 1.5.12 and earlier, when creating temporary files in an NFS filesystem,
 allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files due to limitations of
 the use of the O_EXCL flag on NFS filesystems. (CVE-2006-5297)

 The mutt_adv_mktemp function in the Mutt mail client 1.5.12 and earlier
 does not properly verify that temporary files have been created with
 restricted permissions, which might allow local users to create files
 with weak permissions via a race condition between the mktemp and
 safe_fopen function calls. (CVE-2006-5298)

 Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
