Debian Security Advisory: mutt

Core Security Technologies discovered a buffer overflow in the IMAP
code of Mutt, a text-oriented mail reader supporting IMAP, MIME, GPG,
PGP and threading. This problem allows a remote malicious IMAP server
to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary
code via a specially crafted mail folder.
