|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Mutt: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201406-05)
Date: June 05, 2014
A vulnerability in Mutt could allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service condition.
Mutt is a small but powerful text-based mail client.
Vulnerable: < 1.5.22-r3
Unaffected: >= 1.5.22-r3
Architectures: All supported architectures
A heap-based buffer overflow has been discovered in the mutt_copy_hdr
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted message, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running Mutt or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Mutt users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-client/mutt-1.5.22-r3"
