Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-05-26 06:36:43 EDT
According to Debian advisory DSA 500-1:

Tatsuya Kinoshita discovered a vulnerability in flim, an emacs library
for working with internet messages, where temporary files were created
without taking appropriate precautions.  This vulnerability could
potentially be exploited by a local user to overwrite files with the
privileges of the user running emacs.
