Debian Security Advisory DSA 686-1                                        Martin Schulze

Package        : gftp
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0372

Albert Puigsech Galicia discovered a directory traversal vulnerability
in a proprietary FTP client (CAN-2004-1376) which is also present in
gftp, a GTK+ FTP client.  A malicious server could provide a specially
crafted filename that could cause arbitrary files to be overwritten or
created by the client.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0.11-1woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0.18-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gftp package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

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

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

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