FreeBSD : fetchmail -- crash when bouncing a message (f11d3b22-88c6-11da-a7b2-0060084a00e5)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21533


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Matthias Andree reports :

Fetchmail contains a bug that causes itself to crash when bouncing a message to the originator or to the local postmaster. The crash happens after the bounce message has been sent, when fetchmail tries to free the dynamic array of failed addresses, and calls the free() function with an invalid pointer.


Update the affected package.
