Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : mutt (MDKSA-2003:041-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 14025
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA vulnerability was discovered in the mutt text-mode email client in the IMAP code. This vulnerability can be exploited by a malicious IMAP server to crash mutt or even execute arbitrary code with the privilege of the user running mutt.
The packages for Mandrake Linux 9.1 and 9.1/PPC were not GPG-signed.
This has been fixed and as a result the md5sums have changed. Thanks to Mark Lyda for pointing this out.
SolutionUpdate the affected mutt package.
