Cc-ed Ralf Schlatterbeck on this post too to clarify, if issues
[A] and [D] would also have security implications / IOW if those
would be security flaws too.  Ralf please clarify. Thank you,
Jan.

[A] Doesn't have security implications if roundup is correnctly 
configured. The bug would create a python backtrace. Unless the
"debug" option in section [web] is set (which is explicitly
discouraged) this will only display "an error has occurred" in the
web-interface. Even if someone sets the debug option in a
production release only the hashed password could be disclosed.
Note that this bug only affects the anydbm backend which should not
be used for a production version either.

How is the password hashed?

[D] No security implications: Fixed some permissions on files in 
roundup/cgi and locale directories. These are not accessible via
the web-server. So this doesn't constitute a remote vulnerability.
Local users don't gain anything executing these files as no
privilege escalation is involved (they could copy the file which is
readable anyway and make their local copy executable).

Ralf
