The remote IMAP server is affected by a format string vulnerability.
GNU Mailutils is a collection of mail utilities, including an IMAP4
daemon, a POP3 daemon, and a very simple mail client.
The remote host is running a version of GNU Mailutils containing a
format string vulnerability in its IMAP4 daemon. By exploiting these
issues, a remote attacker may be able to execute code remotely in the
context of the user executing the daemon process, typically root.
