New fetchmail packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and -current to fix security issues.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-0321

Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/fetchmail-6.3.2-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to fetchmail-6.3.2.
Presumably this replaces all the known security problems with
a batch of new unknown ones. (fetchmail is improving, really ;-)
