Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2004:051 normal SHIPPED_LIVE : Updated mutt packages fix remotely-triggerable crash 2004-02-11 05:00:00 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2004-01-28 11:50:16 UTC
A bug was found in the index menu code in versions of mutt.  A remote
attacker could send a carefully crafted mail message which can cause
mutt to segfault and possibly execute arbitrary code as the victim. 

Errata RHSA-2004:051 in progress.
