Description Josh Bressers 2005-01-20 01:42:52 UTC
Mozilla Security Advisory MSA05-002

Title:      Opened attachments are temporarily saved world-readable
Severity:   Moderate (on a multiuser computer)
Reporter:   danielk

Fixed in:   Firefox 1.0
            Thunderbird 0.9
            Mozilla Suite 1.7.5

Vulnerable: Firefox 0.9
            Thunderbird 0.6
            Mozilla 1.7

Mozilla software released after March 2004 saves some temporary files with
world-readable permissions. In the browser this is primarily
content fed to helper applications (for example, PDF files), and in
the mail clients it is attachments.

Do not open sensitive mail attachments on a shared multiuser machine.
Upgrade to fixed version
