    Package : fetchmail
    Vulnerability : programming error
    Problem type : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID : CVE-2005-3088
    Debian Bug : 336096

    Thomas Wolff discovered that the fetchmailconfig program which is
    provided as part of fetchmail, an SSL enabled POP3, APOP, IMAP mail
    gatherer/forwarder, creates the new configuration in an insecure
    fashion that can lead to leaking passwords for mail accounts to local
    users.

    This update also fixes a regression in the package for stable caused
    by the last security update.

    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.9.11-6.3.

    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.2.5-12sarge3.

    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.2.5.4-1.

    We recommend that you upgrade your fetchmail package.

    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------

    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.

    sources.list as given below:

    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade

    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
