    Package        : balsa
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0167
    Byrial Jensen discovered a couple of off-by-one buffer overflow in the
    IMAP code of Mutt, a text-oriented mail reader supporting IMAP, MIME,
    GPG, PGP and threading.  This code is imported in the Balsa package.
    This problem could potentially allow 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 1.2.4-2.2.
    The old stable distribution (potato) does not seem to be affected by
    this problem.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    We recommend that you upgrade your balsa package.
