The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
All versions of exmh prior to 2.3.1 use the /tmp directory for storing
temporary files. This was done in an insecure manner as exmh did not
check to ensure that nobody placed a symlink with the same name in
/tmp in the meantime and thus was vulnerable to a symlink attack. This
could lead to a malicious local user being able to overwrite any file
writable by the user executing exmh. These updated versions of exmh
now use /tmp/username unless TMPDIR or EXMHTMPDIR is set.
Update the affected exmh package.
