    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-5867
    Isaac Wilcox discovered that fetchmail, a popular mail retrieval and
    forwarding utility, insufficiently enforces encryption of connections,
    which might lead to information disclosure.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.2.5-12sarge5.
    For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
    fixed in version 6.3.6~rc5-1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in

    We recommend that you upgrade your fetchmail package.
