Mandrake: 'webmin' vulnerability  22 June 2001 
Recently, Caldera found that when webmin starts a system daemon from the web frontend it does not clear its environment variables. Since these variables contain the authorization of the administrator, any daemon would also get these variables.
Mandrake: 'ispell' temp file vulnerability  20 June 2001 
The ispell program uses mktemp() to open temporary files. This makes it vulnerable to symlink attacks.
Mandrake: 'kdelibs' vulnerability  18 June 2001 
A problem exists with the kdesu component of kdelibs.
Mandrake: 'tcpdump' buffer overflow  13 June 2001 
A number of remote buffer overflows were discovered in the tcpdump package that would allow a remote attack of the local tcpdump process.
Mandrake: 'xinetd' multiple vulnerabilities  11 June 2001 
A bug exists in xinetd as shipped with Mandrake Linux 8.0 dealing with TCP connections with the WAIT state that prevents linuxconf-web from working properly. As well, xinetd contains a security flaw in which it defaults to a umask of 0.
Mandrake: 'imap' buffer overflow vulnerabilities  11 June 2001 
Several buffer overflow vulnerabilities have been found in the UW-IMAP package by the authors and independant groups. These vulnerabilities can be exploited only once a user has authenticated which limits the extent of the vulnerability to a remote shell with that user's permissions.
Mandrake: 'gnupg' format string vulnerability  30 May 2001 
A format string vulnerability exists in gnupg 1.0.5 and previous versions which is fixed in 1.0.6. This vulnerability can be used to invoke shell commands with privileges of the currently logged-in user.
