 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDVSA-2009:201-1
http://www.mandriva.com/security/ 
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : fetchmail
 Date    : December 4, 2009
 Affected: 2008.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in fetchmail:
 
 socket.c in fetchmail before 6.3.11 does not properly handle a '\0'
 (NUL) character in a domain name in the subject's Common Name (CN)
 and subjectAlt(ernative)Name fields of an X.509 certificate, which
 allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL servers via
 a crafted certificate issued by a legitimate Certification Authority,
 a related issue to CVE-2009-2408 (CVE-2009-2666).
 
 This update provides a solution to this vulnerability.

 Update:

 Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for
 Corporate products.
