These errors can lead pine to misbehave when erroneously formed emails are being processed. The result can be a crash of the pine program, or that arbitrary code as provided by a remote attacker via email is being executed.
Due to the nature of pine's functionality (processing email data received from unidentified, non-trustworthy sources), it is strongly recommended to install this update package on all systems that have the pine package installed.
rpm -Fvh pico.rpm pine.rpm
