Description

In fetchmail 6.2.5.1, the remote code injection via POP3 UIDL was fixed, but a denial of service attack was introduced: Two possible NULL-pointer dereferences allow a malicious POP3 server to crash fetchmail by respondig with UID lines containing only the article number but no UID (in violation of RFC-1939), or a message without Message-ID when no UIDL support is available.
