*** This bug has been split off bug 146700 ***

------- 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).
