Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 122779
vsftpd 1.2.0 has nasty bug
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:45:00 EDT
Description of problem:
vsftp 1.2.0 suffers from a pretty nasty bug under high load with
listen=yes. Eventually, the FTP process will stop responding to any
requests, and will be generally broken.
Please errata with 1.2.2.
From the 1.2.2 ChangeLog:
"Fix nasty issue resulting in listener instability under extreme load
(root cause was re-entering malloc/free)."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Needs high disconnect/connect load. This appeared on
ftp.linux.ncsu.edu which is NCSU's Red Hat Linux/Fedora mirror.
This is already fixed in U2.
