[slackware-security]  fetchmail (SSA:2010-136-01)


New fetchmail packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1,
10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+

  A crafted header or POP3 UIDL list could cause a memory leak and crash
  leading to a denial of service.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-1167
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
