Description Vincent Danen 2012-02-15 22:06:55 UTC
It was discovered that mumble created its database file (~/.local/share/data/Mumble/.mumble.sqlite) with insecure world-readable permissions.  If the user had (non-default) permissions on their home directory, another local user could obtain password and configuration settings from the database file [1].

This has been corrected in upstream git [2] and is reported as affecting 1.2.3 and earlier.
