Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA268] DSA-268-1 mutt

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-268-1 mutt

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

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 permits 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.
