Description mob 1999-06-24 22:32:55 UTC
/bin/mail crashes with a Segmentation fault when reading a
mail file with a NULL character.

Comment 1 Jay Turner 1999-06-28 15:16:59 UTC
This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.

Comment 2 Jeff Trawick 2000-01-02 20:22:59 UTC
See bug 8100.  This has a fix for at least one case where there is a binary
zero in the mail text.  I didn't notice this bug or 6859 when I submitted the
report for 8100.  Sorry!
