Slackware New proftpd packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and 11.0 to fix security issues.
[slackware-security]  proftpd (SSA:2006-335-02)

New proftpd packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1,
10.2, and 11.0 to fix security issues.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-5815
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-6170
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-6171


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/proftpd-1.3.0a-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to proftpd-1.3.0a plus an additional security patch.  Several
  security issues were found in proftpd that could lead to the execution of
  arbitrary code by a remote attacker, including one in mod_tls that does
  not require the attacker to be authenticated first.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-5815
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-6170
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-6171
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
