Description

fetchmail 5.9.9 through 6.3.19 does not properly limit the wait time after issuing a (1) STARTTLS or (2) STLS request, which allows remote servers to cause a denial of service (application hang) by acknowledging the request but not sending additional packets.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-fetchmail
  • suse-upgrade-fetchmailconf

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
