Mandriva Advisories MDKSA-2006:115 : mutt


Updated mutt packages fix buffer overflow vulnerability

June 28th, 2006


A stack-based buffer overflow in the browse_get_namespace function in


imap/browse.c of Mutt allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service


(crash) or execute arbitrary code via long namespaces received from the


IMAP server.




Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.



The released versions of Mandriva GNU/Linux affected are:

  • CS3.0
  • 10.2
  • 2006.0

Full information about this advisory, including the updated packages, is available at:
