    It was discovered that Notmuch, an email indexer, did not sufficiently
    escape Emacs MML tags. When using the Emacs interface, a user could
    be tricked into replying to a maliciously formatted message which could
    lead to files from the local machine being attached to the outgoing
    message.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.3.1+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and unstable distribution (sid),
    this problem has been fixed in version 0.11.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your notmuch packages.
