Description


Debian has issued an update for dspam. This fixes a security issue, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to disclose sensitive information.

The security issue is caused due to the "libdspam7-drv-mysql" CRON script executing "mysql" with a clear text password passed via the command line. This can be exploited by a malicious, local user to obtain the password from the list of running processes and gain access to the database.
