Ubuntu Security Notice USN-541-1          November 13, 2007
emacs22 vulnerability
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 7.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 7.10:
  emacs22                         22.1-0ubuntu5.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

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.
