The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
The shadow-utils package contains the tool useradd, which is used to
create or update new user information. When useradd creates an
account, it would create it with improper permissions; instead of
having it owned by the group mail, it would be owned by the user's
primary group. If this is a shared group (ie. 'users'), then all
members of the shared group would be able to obtain access to the mail
spools of other members of the same group. A patch to useradd has been
applied to correct this problem.
Update the affected shadow-utils package.
