From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows 98)

Upgrading glibc and other libraries does not upgrade the libraries for the 
anonymous ftp account.  This may impact security due to anon ftp reliance 
on these libraries.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ls -l `locate ld-2.1.3.so`
2. notice that /home/ftp/lib/ld-2.1.3.so is older.

Actual Results:  -rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        77216 Feb  4  
2000 /home/ftp/lib/ld-2.1.3.so
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        76960 Jul 25  2000 /usr/i386-glibc21-
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-15 12:16:58 EST
Those libraries are part of the anonftp package.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-03-06 14:29:02 EST
anonftp-4.0 takes care of this once and for all - it doesn't own any files 
anymore, but just copies the current ones from rpm triggers.
