Package        : fetchmail
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-4348

Daniel Drake discovered a problem in fetchmail, an SSL enabled POP3,
APOP, IMAP mail gatherer/forwarder, that can cause a crash when the
program is running in multidrop mode and receives messages without
headers.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not seem to be affected by
this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.2.5-12sarge4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.3.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your fetchmail package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
