    Tavis Ormandy discovered a memory leak flaw in the rfc822 group recipient
    parsing in Mutt, a text-based mailreader supporting MIME, GPG, PGP and
    threading, which could result in denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.10.1-2.1+deb10u5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mutt packages.
