Description Bryan Wright 2001-11-28 14:23:50 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.14-5.0 i686)

Description of problem:
The recently released security update for wu-ftpd under RH6.2 has an
earlier version than the previous update (wu-ftpd-2.6.1-6), so "rpm -i -U"
fails.  A workaround is to use "--oldpackage".  This is a big deal, since
we'll soon see worms out there exploiting the bug fixed in the new package.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update wu-ftpd with the previous security update rpm
2. Try to install the latest wu-ftp update (wu-ftpd-2.6.1-0.6x.21.i386.rpm)

Actual Results:  # rpm -i -U wu-ftpd-2.6.1-0.6x.21.i386.rpm
package wu-ftpd-2.6.1-6 (which is newer than wu-ftpd-2.6.1-0.6x.21) is
already installed

Comment 1 Peter Jones 2001-11-28 18:47:15 EST
wu-ftpd-2.6.1-6.i386.rpm has not been released as a 6.2 errata.  The previous
6.2 errata was wu-ftpd-2.6.0-14.6x.i386.rpm .
