Description:: The shell script security exploit exposed and then fixed in Tiger Mail has been reintroduced into Leopard Mail. The loophole allows a sender to disguise an executable file (say, a shell script) as an image or some other harmless file. When clicked on, the executable file runs. A German web site will send you a test email so that you can check for yourself.
