Product:    Fedora Extras [5 6 devel]
Name:       ssmtp
Version:    2.61-11[FE 5 6 devel]
Summary:    Extremely simple MTA to get mail off the system to a Mailhub
Description:
A secure, effective and simple way of getting mail off a system to your mail
hub. It contains no suid-binaries or other dangerous things - no mail spool

forwarded to the configured mailhost. Extremely easy configuration.

Update Information:

Ben XO discovered that during the AUTH LOGIN phase, ssmtp <= 2.61-10 leaks (in BASE64 encoded form) the password used.
Details are available at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=369542


Fedora Extras versions earlier then the version mentioned above are
vulnerable to this problem, upgrade to fix this vulnerability.
