1. Problem Description

  Tnef extracts eMails compressed with MS-Outlook. The compressed file
  includes the path name to which the decompressed data should be
  written.

2. Impact

  By specifing a path name like /etc/passwd and sending a compressed
  mail to root an adversary could gain remote root access to a system
  by overwriting the local password database.
  The same could happen if a mail virus scanner, like AMaVIS, process'
  a malicious mail.

3. Solution

  Update the package from our FTP server.

  It's also possible to use the '-x' option of tnef to specify the
  outputfile.
