Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

In a Mozilla bug report, Daniel Kleinsinger writes :

I was comparing treatment of attachments opened directly from emails
on different platforms. I discovered that Linux builds save
attachments in /tmp with world readable rights. This doesn't seem like
a good thing. Couldn't someone else logged onto the same machine read
your attachments?

This could expose the contents of downloaded files or email
attachments to other users on a multi-user system.
