    joernchen of Phenoelit discovered two command injection flaws in Sup, a
    console-based email client. An attacker might execute arbitrary command 
    if the user opens a maliciously crafted email.
    
    CVE-2013-4478
    
        Sup wrongly handled the filename of attachments.
    
    CVE-2013-4479
    
        Sup did not sanitize the content-type of attachments.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.11-2+nmu1+deb6u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.12.1+git20120407.aaa852f-1+deb7u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sup-mail packages.
