Package : maildrop
Vulnerability : privilege escalation
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id : CVE-2010-0301
Debian Bug : 564601

The latest DSA for maildrop introduced two regressions. The maildrop
program stopped working when invoked as a non-root user, such as with
postfix. Also, the lenny version dropped a dependency on the
courier-authlib package.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0.4-3+lenny3.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0.2-11+etch2.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.0-3.1.

For reference, the original advisory text is below.

Christoph Anton Mitterer discovered that maildrop, a mail delivery agent
with filtering abilities, is prone to a privilege escalation issue that
grants a user root group privileges.

We recommend that you upgrade your maildrop packages.
