Mutt < 1.4.2 menu.c menu_pad_string Function Index Menu Code Remote Overflow DoS
The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.
Mutt 1.4.1 and older versions are vulnerable to a buffer overflow vulnerability in the code which is used to draw menus on screen. An attacker could exploit this flaw to prevent a user from reading his mail using this client (thus corrupting a full mailbox), or possibly to execute code remotely.
Upgrade to Mutt 1.4.2 or later.
