Description Mark J. Cox 2007-05-24 12:19:38 UTC
"A flaw was found in the way fetchmail processed certain APOP authentication
requests. By sending certain responses when fetchmail attempted to authenticate
against an APOP server, a remote attacker could potentially acquire certain
portions of a user's authentication credentials. (CVE-2007-1558)
