MDKSA-2003:041-1: mutt

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mutt package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:041-1 (mutt).


A vulnerability was discovered in the mutt text-mode email client in the IMAP
code. This vulnerability can be exploited by a malicious IMAP server to crash
mutt or even execute arbitrary code with the privilege of the user running mutt.
Update:
The packages for Mandrake Linux 9.1 and 9.1/PPC were not GPG-signed. This has
been fixed and as a result the md5sums have changed. Thanks to Mark Lyda for
pointing this out.
