                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           fetchmail
Date:                   July 5th, 2001
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2001:063

Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, 8.0, Corporate Server 1.0.1,
                        Single Network Firewall 7.2
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Wolfram Kleff reported recently that the fetchmail program would
 segfault when receiving emails with a very large "To:" header.  This is
 due to a buffer overflow within the header parsing code, which can be
 exploited remotely.

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:
  rpm --checksig package.rpm
You can get the GPG public key of the Mandrake Linux Security Team at
  http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/security/RPM-GPG-KEYS
If you use MandrakeUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG
signature is performed automatically for you.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".

You can download the updates directly from one of the mirror sites
listed at:

  http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.
For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Mandrake Linux 8.0, look for it in "updates/8.0/RPMS/".  Updated source
RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download
them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to
update.
