3. Problem description:

gFTP is a multi-threaded FTP client for the X Window System.

A directory traversal bug was found in gFTP. If a user can be tricked into
downloading a file from a malicious ftp server, it is possible to overwrite
arbitrary files owned by the victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0372 to
this issue.

Users of gftp should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported fix for this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:
