Problem description

A problem exists with the HylaFAX program, hfaxd. When hfaxd tries to change it's queue directory and fails, it prints an error message via syslog by directly passing user supplied data as the format string. If hfaxd is installed setuid root, this behaviour can be exploited to gain root access locally. Note that Linux-Mandrake does not ship hfaxd setuid root by default.
