------- Original comment by Josh Bressers (Security Response Team) on 2005.01.31
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 (or worse, depending on the permissions of
the movemail binary).
The proposed fix for this issue is attachment 110458 [details]
This issue should affect FC2.
