===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-233-1           January 02, 2006
fetchmail vulnerability
CVE-2005-4348
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected:

fetchmail

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 6.2.5-8ubuntu2.3 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 6.2.5-12ubuntu1.3 (for
Ubuntu 5.04), or 6.2.5-13ubuntu3.2 (for Ubuntu 5.10).  In general, a
standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Steve Fosdick discovered a remote Denial of Service vulnerability in
fetchmail. When using fetchmail in 'multidrop' mode, a malicious email
server could cause a crash by sending an email without any headers.
Since fetchmail is commonly called automatically (with cron, for
example), this crash could go unnoticed.
