Title: USN-1060-1 -- exim4 vulnerabilities
Description: It was discovered that Exim contained a design flaw in the way it processed alternate configuration files. An attacker that obtained privileges of the "Debian-exim" user could use an alternate configuration file to obtain root privileges. It was discovered that Exim incorrectly handled certain return values when handling logging. A local attacker could use this flaw to obtain root privileges. Dan Rosenberg discovered that Exim incorrectly handled writable sticky-bit mail directories. If Exim were configured in this manner, a local user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or possibly gain privileges. This issue only applied to Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, 8.04 LTS, 9.10, and 10.04 LTS. Dan Rosenberg discovered that Exim incorrectly handled MBX locking. If Exim were configured in this manner, a local user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or possibly gain privileges.
