    6 Hello,
    7 
    8 We have just released BarnOwl 1.5.1 to our website and into our locker
    9 for all supported Athena platforms. We encourage all users to upgrade.
    10 
    11 BarnOwl 1.5.1 fixes a remotely triggerable buffer overflow in "CC:"
    12 handling (CVE-2010-0793), which has potential for remote code
    13 execution. In addition, BarnOwl 1.5.1 fixes numerous memory leaks
    14 throughout the program.
    15 
    16 Thank you for using BarnOwl. As usual, any bug reports, questions, or
    17 feature requests can be directed to the developers at
    18 <barnowl@mit.edu>.

    27 Addendum: CVE-2010-0793 affects all releases of barnowl prior to 1.5.1. Remote code execution is theoretically possible, but would be very difficult.
