    Package: nmh
    Vulnerability type: remote exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    
    The version of nmh that was distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 (aka slink)
    did not check incoming mail messages properly. This could be exploited by
    using carefully designed MIME headers to trick mhshow into executing
    arbitrary shell code.
    
    This has been fixed in version 0.27-0.28-pre8-4. We recommend you upgrade
    your nmh package immediately.
    
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
