Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA774] DSA-774-1 fetchmail

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-774-1 fetchmail

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Edward Shornock discovered a bug in the UIDL handling code of
fetchmail, a common POP3, APOP and IMAP mail fetching utility. A
malicious POP3 server could exploit this problem and inject arbitrary
code that will be executed on the victim host. If fetchmail is
running as root, this becomes a root exploit.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.2.5-12sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.2.5-16.
We recommend that you upgrade your fetchmail package.
