Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-050: mutt

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mutt packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


New mutt packages that fix a remotely-triggerable crash in the menu drawing
code are now available.

Mutt is a text-mode mail user agent.

A bug was found in the index menu code in versions of mutt. A remote
attacker could send a carefully crafted mail message that can cause mutt
to segfault and possibly execute arbitrary code as the victim. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2004-0078 to this issue.

It is recommended that all mutt users upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported security patch and are not vulnerable to this
issue.

Red Hat would like to thank Niels Heinen for reporting this issue.

Note: mutt-1.2.5.1 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 is not vulnerable to
this issue.
