Description Chris Evans 2001-04-03 19:45:24 EDT
Wheee... I get to use the new "Security issues"
group :-)
.
There is a draft CERT advisory circulating regarding
FTP servers and glob() related vulnerabilities and
overflows. The advisory has been posted to vendor-sec
which I believe lots of RedHat developers are on or
have access to.
.
In response to the CERT advisory, someone suggested
that ProFTPd was likely vulnerable. It would be cool
to check that, and if it is indeed vulnerable,
sneakily release RH7.1 powertools with a fixed
version so as to avoid a RH7.1 security update.

proftpd hasn't been in powertools since 6.0. ;)

All together now... "D'oh!!" :-)
