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
