    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 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 1.3.28-2.2.
    
    The old stable distribution (potato) is also affected by this problem
    and an update will follow.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.0 and above.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mutt package.
