Description Josh Bressers 2005-01-31 21:18:50 UTC
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).
