toshiba_hci works by using the Intel SMM interface and using it to send appropriate values to the Toshiba HCI. This tool re- implements several of the functions of the 'Toshiba laptops extras' and ACPI Linux kernel patches, as well as adding extra functionality, but all in a user-space program that does not require any kernel patching. It can do things like alter the LCD brightness, turn the system fan on and off, and more.
I guess it's worth pointing out for the record...
That this isn't a security problem in ntlmaps _per se_, but rather the Debian package thereof. For any user downloading and running this for their personal amusement, keep it in your home area and you should be fine (you don't have your home directory set up to be world readable, do you?).

Thanks for pointing this out, it will be fixed in a new release shortly (probably 0.9.8.11)
