    Package        : mutt
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-3242
    Debian Bug     : 375828
    
    It was discovered that the mutt mail reader performs insufficient
    validation of values returned from an IMAP server, which might overflow
    a buffer and potentially lead to the injection of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.9-2sarge2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.11+cvs20060403-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mutt package.
