Package name pine
Date May 7th, 2001
Advisory ID MDKSA-2001:047
Affected versions 7.1, 7.2, 8.0, CS1.0
Synopsis Updated pine packages fix temporary file vulnerabilities

Problem Description

Versions of the Pine email client prior to 4.33 have various temporary
file creation problems, as does the pico editor. These issues allow
any user with local system access to cause any files owned by any
other user, including root, to potentially be overwritten if the
conditions were right.
