A vulnerability in Mutt could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service condition.
|Package||mail-client/mutt on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.5.22-r3|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.5.22-r3|
Mutt is a small but powerful text-based mail client.
A heap-based buffer overflow has been discovered in the mutt_copy_hdr function.
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"
