Pine 4.x From: Field Heap Corruption Vulnerability



source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/6120/info


A heap corruption may occur when Pine receives an email message containing a particularly crafted "From:" address. Though the address is RFC compliant, Pine reportedly fails to parse it correctly, resulting in a core dump. Execution of arbitrary code may be possible.
