Mandriva: Updated fetchmail packages fix vulnerability Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake Fetchmail before 6.3.6-rc4 does not properly enforce TLS and may transmit cleartext passwords over unsecured links if certain circumstances occur, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks. The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
