Debian Security Advisory DSA 671-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze
February 8th, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : xemacs21
Vulnerability : format string
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-0100

Max Vozeler discovered several format string vulnerabilities in the movemail utility of Emacs, the well-known editor. Via connecting to a malicious POP server an attacker can execute arbitrary code under the privileges of group mail.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 21.4.6-8woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 21.4.16-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your emacs packages.
