    Package        : mutt
    Version        : 1.7.2-1+deb9u5
    CVE ID         : CVE-2021-3181
    Debian Bug     : 980326
    
    rfc822.c in Mutt through 2.0.4 allows remote attackers to
    cause a denial of service (mailbox unavailability) by sending
    email messages with sequences of semicolon characters in
    RFC822 address fields (aka terminators of empty groups).
    
    A small email message from the attacker can cause large
    memory consumption, and the victim may then be unable to
    see email messages from other persons.
    
    For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
    1.7.2-1+deb9u5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mutt packages.
