Description Josh Bressers 2005-12-20 13:30:09 EST
Fetchmail DOS by malicious server in multidrop mode

Fetchmail contains a bug where when running in multidrop mode, a 
malicious mail server can crash the client by sending a message 
without headers.

This is not default behavior, so a user would have to connect to a 
malicious server.
