Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56079
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-233-1 (fetchmail)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-233-1 (fetchmail)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to fetchmail
announced via advisory USN-233-1.

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

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.

Solution:
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.
