Debian Security Advisory DSA-016-2                       security@debian.org

Package        : wu-ftpd
Vulnerability  : temp file creation and format string
Debian-specific: no

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.

This additional advisory only announces a recompile of the package for
the Intel ia32 architecture.  The upload from yesterday was lacking
PAM support.  This only required a recompile and contains no other fixes.

For upgrading please use

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

Or use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to
the proper configuration.


Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
