I am not yet using fetchmail. I will be doing so soon, and came across this. I
have therefore grabbed the source for fetchmail 6.20, but would prefer an rpm.

Comment 2 Colin Adams 2002-12-21 20:50:08 UTC
I had already upgraded to that rpm.
I assumed this was a different problem, as 6.20 was specifically mentioned
as necessary to close the vilnerability. But I guess you have retro-fitted the 
fix into 5.9?
