Description Vincent Danen 2011-05-12 16:57:18 UTC
Multiple libc/glob(3) flaws were reported [1] that affect various *BSD libc implementations.  In particular, globs containing braces could lead to resource exhaustion.

One such vulnerable application is Pure-FTPd.  This has been corrected in upstream version 1.0.32, where support for braces expansion in directory listings was disabled.

Created pure-ftpd tracking bugs for this issue

Affects: fedora-all [bug 704285]
Affects: epel-all [bug 704286]

Comment 2 Vincent Danen 2012-05-16 14:41:24 UTC
Fedora currently ships the fixed 1.0.32 in each supported release.

EPEL5 is not corrected (1.0.29) and EPEL6 is not corrected (1.0.30).
