Debian Security Advisory DSA-029-2                                            Martin Schulze

Package        : proftpd
Vulnerability  : remote DOS & potential buffer overflow
Debian-specific: no

In Debian Security Advisory DSA 029-1 we have reported several
vulnerabilities in proftpd that have been fixed.  For details please
read the main advisory.  This upload fixes:

 1. A memory leak which can result in a denial of service, as reported
    by Wojciech Purczynski.  The default configuration of proftpd
    in Debian is not vulnerable.

 2. A similar memory leak affects the USER command, also as reported
    by Wojciech Purczynski.

 3. Format string vulnerabilities reported by Przemyslaw Frasunek.

The most recent advisory covering proftpd missed one architecture that
was released with Debian GNU/Linux 2.2.  Therefore this advisory is
only an addition to DSA 029-1 and only adds the relevant package for
the Motorola 680x0 architecture.

We recommend you upgrade your sudo packages for m68k immediately.

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

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

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato

  Motorola 680x0 architecture:
      MD5 checksum: 96315bb133a487e81944e6cef2358d09

  These files will be moved into*/binary-$arch/ soon.
