The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
Matthias Andree reports :
In verbose mode, fetchmail prints X.509 certificate subject and issuer
information to the user, and counts and allocates a malloc() buffer
for that purpose.
If the material to be displayed contains characters with high bit set
and the platform treats the 'char' type as signed, this can cause a
heap buffer overrun because non-printing characters are escaped as
\xFF..FFnn, where nn is 80..FF in hex.
