Debian Security Advisory DSA 671-1                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                             Martin Schulze
February 8th, 2005                      http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : xemacs21
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 21.4.6-8woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 21.4.16-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your emacs packages.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
