DESCRIPTION:
A security issue has been discovered in surf, which can be exploited
by malicious, local users to disclose sensitive information.

The security issue is caused due to the application creating the
cookie file (~/.surf/cookies.txt) with insecure world-readable
permissions. This can be exploited to disclose another user's session
information.

The security issue is confirmed in version 0.4.1. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Change permissions on the cookie file (e.g. chmod 600
~/.surf/cookies.txt).

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
Reported by Jakub Wilk in a Debian bug report.
