Description Daniel Roesen 2001-04-26 02:15:13 EDT
From BugTraq posting:

* If anonymous FTP is enabled, a remote user may gain unauthorized
  root access.

* A user with access to a local account may gain unauthorized root

* A remote user who can successfully authenticate to the FTP daemon
  may obtain unauthorized root access, regardless of whether anonymous
  FTP is enabled or whether access is granted to a local account.
  This vulnerability is believed to be somewhat difficult to exploit.
