Debian DLA-1101-1 : emacs23 security update

Description

Charles A. Roelli discovered that Emacs is vulnerable to arbitrary code execution when rendering text/enriched MIME data (e.g. when using Emacs-based mail clients). For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 23.4+1-4+deb7u1. We recommend that you upgrade your emacs23 packages. NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
