How to fix?

Upgrade Debian:12 exim4 to version 4.72-3 or higher.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream exim4 package. See How to fix? for Debian:12 relevant versions.

Exim 4.72 and earlier allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging the ability of the exim user account to specify an alternate configuration file with a directive that contains arbitrary commands, as demonstrated by the spool_directory directive.
