    Package        : emil
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem-Type   : local/remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0152 CAN-2004-0153
    Ulf Harnhammar discovered a number of vulnerabilities in emil, a
    filter for converting Internet mail messages.  The vulnerabilities
    fall into two categories:
     - CAN-2004-0152 - Buffer overflows in (1) the encode_mime function,
       (2) the encode_uuencode function, (3) the decode_uuencode
       function.  These bugs could allow a carefully crafted email message
       to cause the execution of arbitrary code supplied with the message
       when it is acted upon by emil.
     - CAN-2004-0153 - Format string bugs in statements which print
       various error messages.  The exploit potential of these bugs has
       not been established, and is probably configuration-dependent.
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.1.0-beta9-11woody1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
    We recommend that you update your emil package.
