[原文]Ecartis (formerly Listar) 1.0.0 in snapshot 20020125 and earlier does not properly drop privileges when Ecartis is installed setuid-root, "lock-to-user" is not set, and ecartis is called by certain MTA's, which could allow local users to gain privileges.

Ecartis is the new name for the Listar software product. Listar is a mailing list management package for Linux, BSD, and other Unix like operating systems.
It has been reported that under some circumstances, Ecartis does not properly drop privileges. Specifically, this may happen when Ecartis is called by a non-root user. If additional Ecartis vulnerability exists, exploitation may result in consequences beyond those available to the non-privileged Ecartis user.
No exploit is required.
