Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:113
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : mutt
Date : June 4, 2007
Affected: 2007.0, 2007.1, Corporate 3.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A flaw in the way mutt processed certain APOP authentication requests
was discovered. By sending certain responses when mutt attempted to
authenticate again an APOP server, a remote attacker could possibly
obtain certain portions of the user's authentication credentials
(CVE-2007-1558).

A flaw in how mutt handled certain characters in gecos fields could
lead to a buffer overflow. A local user able to give themselves a
carefully crafted Real Name could potentially execute arbitrary code
if a victim used mutt to expand the attacker's alias (CVE-2007-2683).

Updated packages have been patched to address these issues.
