am I a sitting duck for fetchmail hole because can't upgrade?
Just curious, we see a security bulletin that fetchmail should be
upgraded to avoid a malformed hostname threat.
I could wget the new fetchmail .deb with my flimsy modem but I see it
depends on libc6 that is newer than the one on the sid cd set of
2002.10.10 that I have installed.
If I also get the new libc6 that probably means I got to make a lot of
other changes too which means I really should have a new CD set? Which
means I have to go to town and ask my friend to burn a new set which
is something I didn't want to have to do more than once a year.
So I am a sitting duck for a malformed mail message? Perhaps as at
least my other pal runs an spamassassin and exim filter on my mail
before I download it with fetchmail, perhaps I can change a rule in
.exim/filter to protect myself? Or maybe something can be done in
P.S. on http://packages.debian.org/unstable/mail/fetchmail-ssl.html
it says it depends on "fetchmail-common (= 6.1.2-1) (NOT AVAILABLE)"
Does that mean one is screwed either way?
