The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Drake Wilson discovered that Emacs did not correctly handle the safe
mode of 'enable-local-variables'. If a user were tricked into opening
a specially crafted file while 'enable-local-variables' was set to the
non-default ':safe', a remote attacker could execute arbitrary
commands with the user's privileges.
Update the affected packages.
