Description Pekka Savola 2000-06-23 18:05:28 EDT
Yet another wu-ftpd remote hole was reported (w/ intentionally broken 
sploit) on BugTraq yesterday.

I couldn't check this further, but an attached patch (from Connectiva 
Linux, similar stuff in Debian) might help.

Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-06-23 18:09:01 EDT
We're aware of it and have already built an updated package.
It'll be released as soon as the QA guys approve it, should be only a couple
more minutes.
Comment 3 Gilbert E. Detillieux 2000-06-28 11:26:28 EDT
The security patch included in the updated package fixes only the problems
with the *printf-style % format specifications (the known exploit of the
site exec bug).  The patch submitted by pekkas@netcore.fi is different,
in that it deals with other potential buffer overrun problems related to
the site exec command.  Would it not be a good idea to include both patches?
