    According to vendor release notes [0] and security advisories
    [1][2], two security issues exist in the POP3/IMAP batch client
    Fetchmail [3], version up to and including 6.3.5. First, several
    password disclosure vulnerabilities exist because Fetchmail is using
    unsafe logins or omitting the necessary protection through SSL/TLS.
    Second, a Denial of Service (DoS) vulnerability exists because
    Fetchmail crashes during dereferencing the NULL page, when rejecting
    a message sent to an MDA.
