the current mutt version 1.5.23 is vulnerable against a Dos-vulnerability. The vulnerability lies in sendlib.c. I attached a patch for this issue. THis is the original patch from the mutt-developers. It would be awesome when our current version could be patched against this vulnerability because the next mutt release needs more time.

best regards
