[SECURITY] Fedora 7 Update: mutt-1.5.14-4.fc7

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2007-0002 (Corrected)
None
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : mutt
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 1.5.14
Release     : 4.fc7
Summary     : A text mode mail user agent
Description :
Mutt is a text-mode mail user agent. Mutt supports color, threading,
arbitrary key remapping, and a lot of customization.

You should install mutt if you have used it in the past and you prefer
it, or if you are new to mail programs and have not decided which one
you are going to use.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update fixes two security issues:

The APOP protocol allows remote attackers to guess the first 3 characters of a
password via man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks that use crafted message IDs and
MD5 collisions. (CVE-2007-1558)

Buffer overflow in Mutt 1.4.2 might allow local users to execute arbitrary code
via "&" characters in the GECOS field, which triggers the overflow during alias
expansion. (CVE-2007-2683)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Thu May 31 2007 Miroslav Lichvar <mlichvar redhat com> 5:1.5.14-4
- validate msgid in APOP authentication (CVE-2007-1558)
- fix overflow in gecos field handling (CVE-2007-2683)
