Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:126: 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-2005:126 (fetchmail).



A buffer overflow was discovered in fetchmail's POP3 client which could permit a
malicious server to send a carefully crafted message UID, causing fetchmail to
crash or potentially execute arbitrary code as the user running fetchmail.

The updated packages have been patched to address this problem.
