Version : 1.10.1-2.1+deb10u7
CVE ID : CVE-2023-4874 CVE-2023-4875
Debian Bug : 1051563

Two NULL pointer dereference flaws were discovered in Mutt, a text-based
mailreader supporting MIME, GPG, PGP and threading, which may result in
denial of service (application crash) when viewing a specially crafted
email or when composing from a specially crafted draft message.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version
1.10.1-2.1+deb10u7.

We recommend that you upgrade your mutt packages.
