The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the following package versions: Ubuntu 6.06 LTS: slocate 3.0.beta.r3-1ubuntu0.1 Ubuntu 6.10: slocate 3.1-1ubuntu0.1 In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes. Details follow: A flaw was discovered in the permission checking code of slocate. When reporting matching files, locate would not correctly respect the parent directory's "read" bits. This could result in filenames being displayed when the file owner had expected them to remain hidden from other system users.
