    Antti-Juhani Kaijanaho discovered that enemies-of-carlotta, a simple
    manager for mailing lists, does not properly sanitise email addresses
    before passing them through to the system shell.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in version 
    1.0.3-1sarge1
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your enemies-of-carlotta package.
