Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 7022
wu-ftpd-2.6.0-0.4.2.i386.rpm gives unreliable results
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
My old server running RedHat4.2 was working fine with
wu-ftpd-2.4.2b12-6.i386.rpm. After upgrading to
wu-ftpd-2.6.0-0.4.2.i386.rpm, performance was unreliable. FTP downloads to
a user running a text based client usually worked, but downloads to a
Netscape or Explorer client tended to hang on the last few bytes and never
complete. Reliable performance returned when wu-ftpd-2.4.2b12-6.i386.rpm
An update to wu-ftpd-2.6.0-0.4.2.i386.rpm is requested. An FTP daemon that
is reliable and secure is very important.
There have been several updates to wu-ftpd since then including security bug-fixes. Please upgrade and re-open the ticket if
the problem still exists. You are strongly urged to upgrade however becasue of the recent exploits that have come out.
