    Debian-specific: no
    
    Joost Pol found a buffer overflow in the address handling code of
    mutt (a popular mail user agent). Even though this is a one byte
    overflow this is exploitable.
    
    This has been fixed upstream in version 1.2.5.1 and 1.3.25. The
    relevant patch has been added to version 1.2.5-5 of the Debian
    package.

    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
