Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2001:063: fetchmail

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the fetchmail package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:063 (fetchmail).


Wolfram Kleff reported recently that the fetchmail program would segfault when
receiving emails with a very large 'To:' header. This is due to a buffer
overflow within the header parsing code, which can be exploited remotely.
