Description Josh Bressers 2005-02-18 15:05:04 EST
gftp versions 2.0.18 and before have a directory traversal issue.  This issue
was reported to bugtraq in 2004, but it was not discovered in gftp until recently.

This issue should also affect RHEL2.1 and RHEL3.
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-02-18 23:30:48 EST
According to gftp's changelog, this issue is fixed in 2.0.18.  Is this incorrect?
Comment 4 Josh Bressers 2005-02-24 09:06:53 EST

I just checked the source, this is fixed in 2.0.18.
