Bryar security hole

Someone on IRC reported a bug in Bryar. Namely that a Naughty Person can exploit the feature that notifies you of blog-spam by email to execute arbitrary code on your machine, as the user you run Bryar under.

A patched release is on the way to the CPAN, and you are strongly urged to upgrade.
