This update addresses wrong permissions of a file necessary for the CUPS printing subsystem. It could happen that
sigaleaves a file behind with mode 0644 that must be executable for CUPS to work properly.
In addition to that, the two fixes for the security problems from the previous
sigaupdate are included in this update as well. For completeness, the description for these fixes are included here: The first deals with insecure handling of files in
/tmpwhere a local attacker could trick
sigato overwrite arbitrary files. The second problem consists of improper password information blanking when gathering information from the directory
/etc/ppp. The fix for this problem is to leave the files
/etc/ppp/pap-secretsuntouched to not risk the user's privacy.
We recommend to have this update package installed on every installation of UnitedLinux.
