Debian DLA-1455-1 : mutt security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 111519
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSeveral vulnerabilities have been discovered in mutt, a sophisticated text-based Mail User Agent, resulting in denial of service, stack-based buffer overflow, arbitrary command execution, and directory traversal flaws.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 1.5.23-3+deb8u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your mutt packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected mutt, mutt-dbg, and mutt-patched packages.
