The HP Tru64 UNIX implementation of "binmail" contains a locally exploitable buffer overflow.
"binmail" is used to send and display mail messages. A locally exploitable buffer overflow in "binmail" may permit a local attacker to gain elevated privileges and execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable host.
A local user may be able to gain elevated privileges and execute arbitrary code.
Apply a patch.
