Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Mutt and NeoMutt, the worst
of which allows for arbitrary code execution.

Background
==========

Mutt is a small but very powerful text-based mail client.

NeoMutt is a command line mail reader (or MUA). It's a fork of Mutt
with added features.

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mutt, and NeoMutt.
Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted mail
message or connect to malicious mail server using Mutt or NeoMutt,
possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or directory
traversal with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service
condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Mutt users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-client/mutt-1.10-1"

All NeoMuutt users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-client/neomutt-20180716"
