Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Daniel Drake discovered a problem in fetchmail, an SSL enabled POP3,
APOP, IMAP mail gatherer/forwarder, that can cause a crash when the
program is running in multidrop mode and receives messages without
headers.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not seem to be affected by
this problem.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.2.5-12sarge4.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.3.1-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your fetchmail package.
