mutt-1.0pre3 released - fixes security problem

Sep 28, 1999, 14:46 (0 Talkback[s])

[ From Thomas Roessler via the BUGTRAQ mailing list. ]

Mutt 1.0pre3 is out. This is another version from the release candidate series. The reason for immediately releasing this version is a buffer overflow in the text/enriched handler which can be triggered by means of suitably-formatted e-mail messages. Thus, we recommend you upgrade your mutt installations immediately.

If a complete upgrade to the new mutt version is not an option for you, please apply the patch which can be found under the following URL:

ftp://ftp.mutt.org/pub/mutt/patch-0.96.6i.tlr.text_enriched.1

Download information
====================

You can retrieve the distribution files from the following sites:

Most of the mirror sites will need some hours to fetch the new version.

Checksums
=========

The following checksums have been generated using the md5sum(1) utility. Note that, for the tar balls, detached PGP signatures are available.
