New versions of smtp-refuser fixes security hole  13 December 1999 
Posted by Team   
This bug was experienced in May 1999 but wasn't reported on this channel yet. Former versions of the smtp-refuser package came with unchecked logging facility to /tmp/log. This allowed deleting arbitrary, root-owned files by any user who has write access to /tmp
New versions of termcap-compat fixes buffer overflow  13 December 1999 
Posted by Team   
We have received a report that former versions of libtermcap contained an exploitable buffer overflow. Debian itself is not exploitable by this bug since termcap was abandoned in favour of terminfo long ago. However, if you have compiled your own programs using termcap or have installed third party programs that depend on libtermcap and run as root they are exploitable.

Posted by Team

New versions of mailman fixes cookie attack  13 December 1999 
Posted by Team   
We have become aware that the version mailman as supplied in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 has a problem with verifying list administrators. The problem is that the cookie value generation used was predictable, so using forged authentication cookies it was possible to access the list administration webpages without knowing the proper password.
