Linux-Mandrake security update advisory: emacs

Author: JT Smith

"A vulnerability exists in Emacs 20.6 and prior that allows any user on a multiuser system to eavesdrop
on, or forge responses to, an Emacs client. The vulnerability stems from Emacs' failure to properly set
permissions for slave PTY devices." More information and updates at Linux Today.
