I hope you provide a cleaned-up version. .../msg00257.html is full
of binary crap. And the link .../bin00000.bin could be stored
as the PNG file it is supposed to be. The way it is now, I get
a MIME-type of application/octet-stream, which Mozilla won't
display. Maybe you can put the text, the spreadsheet, and the
graph on a website?

Archive maintainers, what happens to attachments like those in
the mentioned mail? I don't keep debian-security mails around,
so I can't see what MIME-type the attachments had. The binary crap
must be the spreadsheet which has been inlined.
