-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 ________________________________________________________________________ OpenPKG Security Advisory The OpenPKG Project http://www.openpkg.org/security.html http://www.openpkg.org firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com OpenPKG-SA-2004.005 09-Mar-2004 ________________________________________________________________________ Package: mutt Vulnerability: buffer overflow in the index menu code OpenPKG Specific: no Affected Releases: Affected Packages: Corrected Packages: OpenPKG CURRENT <= mutt-1.4.1i-20040207 >= mutt-184.108.40.206i-20040214 OpenPKG 2.0 none N.A. OpenPKG 1.3 <= mutt-1.4.1i-1.3.1 >= mutt-1.4.1i-1.3.2 Dependent Packages: none Description: According to a posting on Bugtraq , a buffer overflow exists in the mail user agent Mutt . It can be triggered by incoming messages and there are reports about spam that has actually triggered this problem and crashed Mutt. The bug was reported to Red Hat by Niels Heinen. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project assigned the id CAN-2004-0078  to the problem. Please check whether you are affected by running "
/bin/rpm -q mutt". If you have the "mutt" package installed and its version is affected (see above), we recommend that you immediately upgrade it (see Solution).  Solution: Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release , fetch it from the OpenPKG FTP service  or a mirror location, verify its integrity , build a corresponding binary RPM from it  and update your OpenPKG installation by applying the binary RPM . For the affected release OpenPKG 1.3, perform the following operations to permanently fix the security problem (for other releases adjust accordingly). $ ftp ftp.openpkg.org ftp> bin ftp> cd release/1.3/UPD ftp> get mutt-1.4.1i-1.3.2.src.rpm ftp> bye $ /bin/rpm -v --checksig mutt-1.4.1i-1.3.2.src.rpm $ /bin/rpm --rebuild mutt-1.4.1i-1.3.2.src.rpm $ su - # /bin/rpm -Fvh /RPM/PKG/mutt-1.4.1i-1.3.2.*.rpm ________________________________________________________________________ References:  http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=bugtraq&m=107651677817933  http://www.mutt.org/  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2004-0078  http://www.openpkg.org/tutorial.html#regular-source  http://www.openpkg.org/tutorial.html#regular-binary  ftp://ftp.openpkg.org/release/1.3/UPD/mutt-1.4.1i-1.3.2.src.rpm  ftp://ftp.openpkg.org/release/1.3/UPD/  http://www.openpkg.org/security.html#signature ________________________________________________________________________ For security reasons, this advisory was digitally signed with the OpenPGP public key "OpenPKG "(ID 63C4CB9F) of the OpenPKG project which you can retrieve from http://pgp.openpkg.org and hkp://pgp.openpkg.org.
