New mutt packages are available for Slackware 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current
to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mutt-1.5.23-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a buffer overflow where malformed RFC2047 header
  lines could result in denial of service or potentially the execution
  of arbitrary code as the user running mutt.
  For more information, see:
