FreeBSD : fetchmail -- crashes when refusing a message bound for an MDA (37e30313-9d8c-11db-858b-0060084a00e5)

High Nessus Plugin ID 23985


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


Matthias Andree reports :

When delivering messages to a message delivery agent by means of the 'mda' option, fetchmail can crash (by passing a NULL pointer to ferror() and fflush()) when refusing a message. SMTP and LMTP delivery modes aren't affected.


Update the affected package.
