User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Debian Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the proftpd FTP daemon, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2006-5815 It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the sreplace() function may lead to denial of service and possibly the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2006-6170 It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the mod_tls addon module may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2006-6171 It was discovered that insufficient validation of FTP command buffer size limits may lead to denial of service. Due to unclear information this issue was already fixed in DSA-1218 as CVE-2006-5815.

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the proftpd FTP
daemon, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or denial
of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
the following problems:

CVE-2006-5815

    It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the sreplace() function
    may lead to denial of service and possibly the execution of arbitrary
    code.

CVE-2006-6170

    It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the mod_tls addon module
    may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2006-6171

    It was discovered that insufficient validation of FTP command buffer
    size limits may lead to denial of service. Due to unclear information
    this issue was already fixed in DSA-1218 as CVE-2006-5815.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problem has been fixed in version
1.2.10-15sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3.0-16 of the proftpd-dfsg package.

We recommend that you upgrade your proftpd package.
