Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 4
Name : fetchmail
Version : 6.2.5
Release : 7.fc4.1
Summary : A remote mail retrieval and forwarding utility.
Description :
Fetchmail is a remote mail retrieval and forwarding utility intended for use over on-demand TCP/IP links, like SLIP or PPP connections. Fetchmail supports every remote-mail protocol currently in use on the Internet (POP2, POP3, RPOP, APOP, KPOP, all IMAPs, ESMTP ETRN, IPv6, and IPSEC) for retrieval. Then Fetchmail forwards the mail through SMTP so you can read it through your favorite mail client.

Install fetchmail if you need to retrieve mail over SLIP or PPP connections.

Update Information:

A buffer overflow was discovered in fetchmail's POP3 client. A malicious server could cause fetchmail to execute arbitrary code.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CAN-2005-2355 to this issue.

All fetchmail users should upgrade to the updated package, which fixes this issue.
