    DESCRIPTION
     Mutt[1] is a text-mode email client.
     
     Core Security Technologies discovered[2] a buffer overflow
     vulnerability in the mutt code that handles IMAP folders. An attacker
     who is able to control an IMAP server accessed by mutt can exploit
     this vulnerability to remotely crash the mutt client or to execute
     arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running it.
     
     The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project has assigned
     the name CAN-2003-0201 to this issue[3].

    SOLUTION
     All mutt users should upgrade.
