    Package        : emacs21
    Vulnerability  : format string
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0100
    
    Max Vozeler discovered several format string vulnerabilities in the
    movemail utility of Emacs, the well-known editor.  Via connecting to a
    malicious POP server an attacker can execute arbitrary code under the
    privileges of group mail.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 21.2-1woody3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 21.3+1-9.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your emacs packages.
