Package        : mutt
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0167

Byrial Jensen discovered a couple of off-by-one buffer overflow in the
IMAP code of Mutt, a text-oriented mail reader supporting IMAP, MIME,
GPG, PGP and threading.  This problem could potentially allow 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 1.3.28-2.2.

The old stable distribution (potato) is also affected by this problem
and an update will follow.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.0 and above.

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.
