    Package        : mutt
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    Bugtraq ID     : 7120
    CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0140
    
    Core Security Technologies discovered a buffer overflow in the IMAP
    code of Mutt, a text-oriented mail reader supporting IMAP, MIME, GPG,
    PGP and threading.  This problem allows 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 1.3.28-2.1.
    
    The old stable distribution (potato) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mutt package.
