Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2015 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
It was discovered that fetchmail did not correctly require TLS
negotiation in certain situations. This would result in a user's
unencrypted password being sent across the network.
If fetchmail has been configured to use the 'sslproto tls1',
'sslcertck', or 'sslfingerprint' options with a server that does not
correctly support TLS negotiation, this update may cause fetchmail to
(correctly) abort authentication.
Update the affected fetchmail, fetchmail-ssl and / or fetchmailconf
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.8
