3. Problem description:

Fetchmail is a remote mail retrieval and forwarding utility intended
for use over on-demand TCP/IP links, like SLIP or PPP connections.

A flaw was found in the way fetchmail processed certain APOP authentication
requests. By sending certain responses when fetchmail attempted to
authenticate against an APOP server, a remote attacker could potentially
acquire certain portions of a user's authentication credentials.
(CVE-2007-1558)

All users of fetchmail should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to correct this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use 
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_58_10188
