Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2002:063: 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-2002:063 (fetchmail).


Several buffer overflows and a boundary check error were discovered in all
fetchmail versions prior to 6.1.0 by e-matters GmbH. These problems are
vulnerable to crashes and/or arbitrary code execution by remote attackers if
fetchmail is running in multidrop mode. The code execution would be done with
the same privilege as the user running fetchmail.
