    New mutt packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current to
    fix a security issue.
    
    
    Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
    +--------------------------+
    patches/packages/mutt-1.10.1-i586-2_slack14.2.txz:  Rebuilt.
      Mutt had incorrect error handling when initially connecting to an IMAP
      server, which could result in an attempt to authenticate without enabling TLS.
      For more information, see:
