[SECURITY] Current versions of mailx fixes /tmp problem



Former versions of mailx used an unsecure means of opening files
beneath /tmp for writing.  This can be used to damage files in a users
directory or even systemwide.

We recommend you upgrade your mailx package immediately.

dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
