Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.70946
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-1221-1 (mutt)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-1221-1 (mutt)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to mutt
announced via advisory USN-1221-1.

Details:

It was discovered that mutt incorrectly verified the hostname in an SSL
certificate. An attacker could trick mutt into trusting a rogue SMTPS,
IMAPS, or POP3S server's certificate, which was signed by a trusted certificate
authority, to perform a man-in-the-middle attack.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 11.04:
mutt 1.5.21-2ubuntu3.1
mutt-patched 1.5.21-2ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 10.10:
mutt 1.5.20-9ubuntu2.1
mutt-patched 1.5.20-9ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
mutt 1.5.20-7ubuntu1.1
mutt-patched 1.5.20-7ubuntu1.1
