Description Adam Mariš 2017-09-19 12:06:39 UTC
When rebasing pure-ftpd in Fedora 26, 27 and Rawhide, a packaging error occurred due to which the original configuration was ignored after update and service started running with default configuration. This has security implications because of overriding security-related configuration as well.

This issue is Fedora-specific and affected Fedora 26, 27 and Rawhide. The affected downstream version is pure-ftpd-1.0.46-1.
