Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Steve Fosdick discovered a remote Denial of Service vulnerability in
fetchmail. When using fetchmail in 'multidrop' mode, a malicious email
server could cause a crash by sending an email without any headers.
Since fetchmail is commonly called automatically (with cron, for
example), this crash could go unnoticed.
Update the affected fetchmail, fetchmail-ssl and / or fetchmailconf
