The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
In fetchmail 126.96.36.199, the remote code injection via POP3 UIDL was
fixed, but a denial of service attack was introduced :
Two possible NULL pointer dereferences allow a malicious POP3 server
to crash fetchmail by respondig with UID lines containing only the
article number but no UID (in violation of RFC-1939), or a message
without Message-ID when no UIDL support is available.
