Description Gustavo Zacarias (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-01-09 10:50:53 UTC
A specially-crafted email can make fetchmail crash.
Comment 1 Martin Holzer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-09 13:09:09 UTC
6.2.5 is in cvs
Comment 2 Joshua J. Berry (CondorDes) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-26 13:21:17 UTC
Is this getting moved to stable anytime soon?
Comment 3 Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-26 13:43:13 UTC
stabled on x86
Comment 4 Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-26 13:44:08 UTC
the problem will be the alpha arch, because 6.2.5 appears masked on alpha, but earlier versions are stable on there.  can we get some alpha people on this?
Comment 5 Jay Maynard (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-26 15:45:16 UTC
Unable to reproduce the header corruption that resulted in 6.2.4 being masked on Alpha. Marked stable.
Comment 6 Joshua J. Berry (CondorDes) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-29 18:08:21 UTC
I've submitted a draft GLSA for this bug (id ddc13b8a4b951395bc251f69ef1920e9).

I don't much like the Description field in the GLSA, but I couldn't find any more detailed information to include. :-/

PPC -- latest stable version of fetchmail for ppc is 5.9.14.  Can someone look at 6.2.5 and see if it can be marked stable?

AMD64 -- the 6.2.5 ebuild has amd64-specific stuff in it ("use amd64" fex) but there are no amd64 keywords.  Can you double-check?

Also adding other arches.  
Comment 8 Lars Weiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-30 03:39:03 UTC
It's now stable on ppc.  Removing from Cc.
Comment 9 Jon Portnoy (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-30 06:47:56 UTC
Stable on AMD64
