Detail

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"
