Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59208
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-520-1 (fetchmail)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-520-1 (fetchmail)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to fetchmail
announced via advisory USN-520-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

Gaetan Leurent discovered a vulnerability in the APOP protocol based
on MD5 collisions. As fetchmail supports the APOP protocol, this
vulnerability can be used by attackers to discover a portion of the APOP
user's authentication credentials. (CVE-2007-1558)

Earl Chew discovered that fetchmail can be made to de-reference a NULL
pointer when contacting SMTP servers. This vulnerability can be used
by attackers who control the SMTP server to crash fetchmail and cause
a denial of service. (CVE-2007-4565)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
fetchmail 6.3.2-2ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 6.10:
fetchmail 6.3.4-1ubuntu4.2

Ubuntu 7.04:
fetchmail 6.3.6-1ubuntu2.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to affect the
necessary changes.
