Patch: FreeBSD mutt

A problem with the way mutt, a text editor for Linux, handles e-mail address headers could be used to execute arbitrary commands on the affected machine. Using specially crafted message headers, a malicious user could exploit a buffer overflow in the application to execute the code with the privileges of the logged-in user.
