Description of problem:
version of lftp used in RHEL 5 and earlier have issues with
quoting in scripts generated by 'mirror --script' and this may
cause priviledge escalation and a remote command execution
(although possibilty of such attack looks somewhat remote).
Looking at versions it appears that this lftp will be affected
by bug #211483 as well.
The same will apply to FC5; FC6 and rawhide currently sport
versions where this bug was fixed.
