Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2007:016: 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-2007:016 (fetchmail).

Fetchmail before 6.3.6-rc4 does not properly enforce TLS and may
transmit cleartext passwords over unsecured links if certain
circumstances occur, which permits remote attackers to obtain sensitive
information via man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
