Vulnerability Insight:
Mutt is a text-mode mail user agent.

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way mutt processed

to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of
the user running mutt. (CVE-2014-0467)

All mutt users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to correct this issue. All running instances of
mutt must be restarted for this update to take effect.
