3. Problem description:

Mutt is a text-mode mail user agent.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Mutt processes an overly
long namespace from a malicious imap server.  In order to exploit this
flaw a user would have to use Mutt to connect to a malicious IMAP server.
(CVE-2006-3242)

Users of Mutt are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
