Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 13072
security fix for SITE-EXEC for 6.0/6.1
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
The current version (including updates) of wu-ftpd is 2.6.0-1 for Redhat 6.0 and 6.1.
Since this was released in Oct '99 with few differences from the
base 2.6.0 wu-ftpd code, shouldn't the security fix listed for
5.2/6.2 also need to be applied here?!? Am I missing something,
like is SITE-EXEC not enabled in 6.0 or 6.1's version or something?
There was some confusion about whether or not 6.0 and 6.1 are still supported.
The updates have been released now.
Not to be a pest, but shouldn't the web pages for 6.0/6.1 be updated and
possibly a new security announcement be made to the relevant lists. It seems
that the fact that there is an update for wu-ftpd available already to 2.6 for
these platforms might cause some confusion for system administrators, who might
think they don't need to apply anything for their platform.
