Cox> I'm not sure how to vote on this, I did the research and read
the changlog and it appears that the issue you mention here has not
been fixed at all; merely documented as of sane version 1.0.5
Change description based on the information in the Sane tarball; note that
this affects all versions to date and is not fixed.
- Security problems with pnm
If the pnm backend is installed and saned is used to allow users on
remote computers to scan on the local machine, pnm files can be read by
the remote user. This is limited to the files saned can access (usually
it's running as user "sane"). All pnm files can be read if saned runs
as root which isn't recommended anyway. The pnm backend is disabled
by default. If you want to use it, enable it with configure (see
configure --help for details). Be sure that only trusted users can
access the pnm backend over saned.
