    Package        : fetchmail
    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3088
    Debian Bug     : 336096
    
    Thomas Wolff discovered that the fetchmailconfig program which is
    provided as part of fetchmail, an SSL enabled POP3, APOP, IMAP mail
    gatherer/forwarder, creates the new configuration in an insecure
    fashion that can lead to leaking passwords for mail accounts to local
    users.
    
    This update also fixes a regression in the package for stable caused
    by the last security update.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.9.11-6.3.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.2.5-12sarge3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.2.5.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your fetchmail package.
