Check for updates if you use mutt...

Subject: mutt-1.4.1 fixes a buffer overflow.

Mutt versions 1.4.1 and 1.5.4 have just been released and will soon be
available from ftp://ftp.mutt.org/mutt/.

Both versions fix a buffer overflow in mutt's IMAP client code which was
identified by Core Security Technologies, and fixed by Edmund
Grimley Evans.  A more detailed advisory will be published by Core Security.

Version 1.4.1 is a release on mutt's stable branch.  The only
differences against 1.4 are a number of bug fixes.  If you are
currently using mutt 1.4, it's probably a very good idea to update.

Version 1.5.4 is a snapshot of mutt's unstable branch, and may be
interesting to those brave souls who would like to play with the
latest features.  (Or want to help us to identify some bugs in that code.)
