[DSA064] DSA-064-1 w3m

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-064-1 w3m

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

SecureNet Service reported that w3m (a console web browser) has a
buffer overflow in its MIME header parsing code. This could be exploited
by a possible hacker if by making a web-server a user visits return carefully

This has been fixed in version 0.1.10+0.1.11pre+kokb23-4, and we
recommend that you upgrade your w3m package.
