Package        : wu-ftpd
Vulnerability  : temp file creation and format string

Security people at WireX have noticed a temp file creation bug and the
WU-FTPD development team has found a possible format string bug in
wu-ftpd.  Both could be remotely exploited, though no such exploit
exists currently.

dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
