Description Chris Ricker 2002-06-22 00:19:20 EDT
This bug also exists in Red Hat 7.3 (bug #65081) and needs to be fixed there as

The mgetty-sendfax lockfile directory is world-writable and not sticky.

[root@localhost outgoing]# ls -ld /var/spool/fax/outgoing/locks/
drwxrwxrwx    2 root     root         4096 May 26 23:05
[root@localhost outgoing]# 

At a minimum, this should be chmod 1777
