[DSA830] DSA-830-1 ntlmaps Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-830-1 ntlmaps

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Drew Parsons noticed that the post-installation script of ntlmaps, an
NTLM authorisation proxy server, changes the permissions of the
configuration file to be world-readable. It contains the user name
and password of the Windows NT system that ntlmaps connects to and,
hence, leaks them to local users.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain an ntlmaps package.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.9-2sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.9-4.
We recommend that you upgrade your ntlmaps package.
