Description

Updated pine packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 7.0, 6.2, and 5.2. These new updated packages fix temporary file creation issues in the pine mail client and the pico text editor that comes with pine.

Previous versions of the pine email client, and the pico editor have had various temporary file creation issues that allow any user with local system access, to cause files owned by anyone including root to potentially be overwritten if the right set of conditions are met.

Solution(s)

  • redhat-upgrade-pine
