[slackware-security] mutt (SSA:2014-071-01)

 

New mutt packages are available for Slackware 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current

to fix a security issue.

 

 

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:

+--------------------------+

patches/packages/mutt-1.5.23-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded.

This update fixes a buffer overflow where malformed RFC2047 header

lines could result in denial of service or potentially the execution

of arbitrary code as the user running mutt.

For more information, see:

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0467

(* Security fix *)
