I find Joost Pol's advisory
(http://www.pine.nl/advisories/pine-cert-20020601.asc) pretty unclear.
Does this vulnerability only affect *BSD or also Linux versions like
Debian and Slackware (which are BSD oriented)?

"Platforms: FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, maybe more."

Any pointers would be much appreciated.

Grtz, Jan
