Foresight: fetchmail  06 September 2007 
Previous versions of the fetchmail package may crash when attempting to deliver an internal warning or error message through an untrusted or compromised SMTP server, leading to a possible Denial of Service.

Foresight: tar  27 August 2007 
Previous versions of the tar package are vulnerable to an attack in which unpacking an intentionally-malformed tar archive can overwrite arbitrary files to which the user running tar has write access. If the attacking user knows the name of a vulnerable binary file and overwrites it, this allows the attacker to place arbitrary code on the system which is likely to be run. If root is running tar, this includes any file on the system, which would elevate this to an indirect non-deterministic remote root unauthorized access vulnerability.
 
Foresight: rsync  23 August 2007 
Previous versions of the rsync package contain multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities, possibly allowing remote attackers to execute arbitrary code using maliciously crafted directory names.
 
Foresight: xterm  23 August 2007 
Previous versions of the xterm package assigned incorrect ownership and write permissions to pseudo-terminal devices, permitting local users to direct output to other users' xterm sessions.
 
Foresight: tetex-dvips tetex-fonts  14 August 2007 
Previous versions of the tetex package are vulnerable to an int overflow in included xpdf code, which can be exploited via a specially-crafted PDF file to execute arbitrary code.
 
Foresight: poppler  14 August 2007 
Previous versions of the poppler package are vulnerable to an int overflow in included xpdf code, which can be exploited via a specially-crafted PDF file to execute arbitrary code.
 
Foresight: openssl  13 August 2007 
Previous versions of the openssl package are vulnerable to an attack in which a local attacker may be able to discover another user's RSA private key by watching another running process using that key.
