Description

A flaw was discovered in mutt, a text-based mailreader. A specially crafted mail header could cause mutt to crash, leading to a denial of service condition.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
