3. Problem description:

XEmacs is a powerful, customizable, self-documenting, modeless text editor.

Max Vozeler discovered several format string vulnerabilities in the
movemail utility of XEmacs. If a user connects to a malicious POP server, an
attacker can execute arbitrary code as the user running xemacs. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CAN-2005-0100 to this issue.

Users of XEmacs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:

    http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

146704 - CAN-2005-0100 Arbitrary code execution in *emacs*
