Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA670] DSA-670-1 emacs20

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-670-1 emacs20

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Max Vozeler discovered several format string vulnerabilities in the
movemail utility of Emacs, the well-known editor. Via connecting to a
malicious POP server a possible hacker can execute arbitrary code under the
rights of group mail.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 20.7-13.3.
The unstable distribution (sid) does not contain an Emacs20 package
anymore.
We recommend that you upgrade your emacs packages.
