Package        : mutt
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
Bugtraq ID     : 7120
CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0140

Core Security Technologies discovered a buffer overflow in the IMAP
code of Mutt, a text-oriented mail reader supporting IMAP, MIME, GPG,
PGP and threading.  This problem allows a remote malicious IMAP server
to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary
code via a specially crafted mail folder.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3.28-2.1.

The old stable distribution (potato) is not affected by this problem.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.5.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mutt package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
