Check for the version of the fetchmail package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:063 (fetchmail).
Wolfram Kleff reported recently that the fetchmail program would segfault when
receiving emails with a very large 'To:' header. This is due to a buffer
overflow within the header parsing code, which can be exploited remotely.
