Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Wolfram Kleff reported recently that the fetchmail program would
segfault when receiving emails with a very large 'To:' header. This is
due to a buffer overflow within the header parsing code, which can be
exploited remotely.
