        Immunix OS Security Advisory

Packages updated:       mutt
Affected products:      Immunix OS 6.2, 7.0-beta, and 7.0
Bugs Fixed:             immunix/1506
Date:                   March 15, 2001
Advisory ID:            IMNX-2001-70-006-01

Description:
The version of mutt shipped in Immunix 6.2 has a format string vulnerability. The version of mutt shipped in all Immunix versions contain a problem connecting to some IMAP servers.

Immunix 7.0 does not install the mutt package by default but provides it in the extras/unsupported directory so it does not need to be upgraded unless it has been installed manually by the system administrator.

Packages have been created and released that fix these problems.
