Fedora 10 : fetchmail-6.3.8-9.fc10 (2009-8770)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 40863

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

If fetchmail is running in daemon mode, it must be restarted for this update to take effect (use the 'fetchmail --quit' command to stop the fetchmail process).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected fetchmail package.
