Insight

Insight

Colin Phipps and Daniel Kobras discovered and fixed several serious bugs in the saft daemon `sendfiled' which caused it to drop privileges incorrectly. Exploiting this a local user can easily make it execute arbitrary code under root privileges. We recommend you upgrade your sendfile packages immediately.
