Description

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 CVE-2005-2355 to this issue.

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

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
