Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2004:344 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Low: semi security update 2004-08-18 04:00:00 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2004-05-26 10:39:02 UTC
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.

Issue is public but low risk.
