After reading posting of jsn () redline ru about elm bug which gives gid
mail I just wanted to say some things about /usr/bin/filter program which
is standard in all elm packages under slackware 3.1 (maybe in 3.0 as
well), it is also has suid bit on group mail.With the same parameters as
elm it has buffer overflow.Same exploit posted here by jsn () redline ru
works just fine.
