Scientific Linux Security Update : mutt on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73073
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way mutt processed certain email headers. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send an email with specially crafted headers that, when processed, could cause mutt to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running mutt. (CVE-2014-0467)
All running instances of mutt must be restarted for this update to take effect.
SolutionUpdate the affected mutt and / or mutt-debuginfo packages.
