 Problem Description:
 
 A flaw in the way mutt processed certain APOP authentication requests
 was discovered.  By sending certain responses when mutt attempted to
 authenticate again an APOP server, a remote attacker could possibly
 obtain certain portions of the user's authentication credentials
 (CVE-2007-1558).
 
 A flaw in how mutt handled certain characters in gecos fields could
 lead to a buffer overflow.  A local user able to give themselves a
 carefully crafted Real Name could potentially execute arbitrary code
 if a victim used mutt to expand the attacker's alias (CVE-2007-2683).
 
 Updated packages have been patched to address these issues.
