FreeBSD : fetchmail -- two vulnerabilities in NTLM authentication (83f9e943-e664-11e1-a66d-080027ef73ec)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 61539


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


Matthias Andree reports :

With NTLM support enabled, fetchmail might mistake a server-side error message during NTLM protocol exchange for protocol data, leading to a SIGSEGV.

Also, with a carefully crafted NTLM challenge, a malicious server might cause fetchmail to read from a bad memory location, betraying confidential data. It is deemed hard, although not impossible, to steal other accounts' data.


Update the affected package.
