Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.64655
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-816-1 (fetchmail)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-816-1 (fetchmail)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to fetchmail
announced via advisory USN-816-1.

Details follow:

Moxie Marlinspike discovered that fetchmail did not properly handle
certificates with NULL characters in the certificate name. A remote
attacker could exploit this to perform a man in the middle attack to
view sensitive information or alter encrypted communications.

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
fetchmail 6.3.2-2ubuntu2.3

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
fetchmail 6.3.8-10ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
fetchmail 6.3.8-11ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 9.04:
fetchmail 6.3.9~
rc2-4ubuntu1.1

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