CVE-2013-4478 is for the issue specifically covered in
http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2013/Oct/att-272/whatsup.txt

which is
https://github.com/sup-heliotrope/sup/commit/8b46cdbfc14e07ca07d403aa28b0e7bc1c544785
(security: shellwords escape attachment file names to prevent remote
code execution).

I missed that they fixed a second issue:

https://github.com/sup-heliotrope/sup/commit/ca0302e0c716682d2de22e9136400c704cc93e42
(security: prevent remote command injection in content_type)

Pleas use CVE-2013-4479 for this
