     8Hello,
     9
     10We have just released BarnOwl 1.5.1 to our website and into our locker
     11for all supported Athena platforms. We encourage all users to upgrade.
     12
     13BarnOwl 1.5.1 fixes a remotely triggerable buffer overflow in "CC:"
     14handling (CVE-2010-0793), which has potential for remote code
     15execution. In addition, BarnOwl 1.5.1 fixes numerous memory leaks
     16throughout the program.
     17
     18Thank you for using BarnOwl. As usual, any bug reports, questions, or
     19feature requests can be directed to the developers at

     29Addendum: CVE-2010-0793 affects all releases of barnowl prior to 1.5.1. Remote code execution is theoretically possible, but would be very difficult.
