    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2655
    Debian Bug     : 325135
    Max Vozeler discoveredt hat the lockmail program from maildrop, a
    simple mail delivery agent with filtering abilities, does not drop
    group privileges before executing commands given on the commandline,
    allowing an attacker to execute arbitrary commands under with group
    mail privileges.
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.3-1.1sarge1.
