Description Mark J. Cox 2003-09-04 14:15:34 UTC
Public Sep10, Noon EDT

CAN-2003-0720: Pine buffer overflow in its handling of the
'message/external-body' type.  

CAN-2003-0721: Pine integer overflow in its MIME header parsing

Both these issues would allow a carefully crafted email to run arbitrary
commands as the user who reads the message.
