A race condition in the safe_open function in the Mutt mail client
1.5.12 and earlier, when creating temporary files in an NFS
filesystem, allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files due to
limitations of the use of the O_EXCL flag on NFS filesystems.
The mutt_adv_mktemp function in the Mutt mail client 1.5.12 and
earlier does not properly verify that temporary files have been
created with restricted permissions, which might allow local users to
create files with weak permissions via a race condition between the
mktemp and safe_fopen function calls. (CVE-2006-5298)
Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
Update the affected mutt and / or mutt-utf8 packages.
