Description Martin Prpič 2014-10-06 14:28:59 UTC
Various security-related flaws were fixed in getmail versions 4.44, 4.45, and 4.46 [1]. The version of getmail in epel-6 is: getmail-4.40.1-1.el6. CVEs for these issues were requested at [2]. Fedora and EPEL-7 ship getmail-4.46 and are thus not affected.
