Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-9386
2009-09-09 00:45:39
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : proftpd
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 1.3.2a
Release     : 5.fc10
URL         : http://www.proftpd.org/
Summary     : Flexible, stable and highly-configurable FTP server
Description :
ProFTPD is an enhanced FTP server with a focus toward simplicity, security,
and ease of configuration. It features a very Apache-like configuration
syntax, and a highly customizable server infrastructure, including support for
multiple 'virtual' FTP servers, anonymous FTP, and permission-based directory
visibility.

This package defaults to the standalone behaviour of ProFTPD, but all the
needed scripts to have it run by xinetd instead are included.

This update has a large number of changes from previous Fedora packages; the
highlights are as follows:    - Update to upstream release 1.3.2a  - Fix SQL
injection vulnerability at login (#485125, CVE-2009-0542)  - Fix SELinux
compatibility (#498375)  - Fix audit logging (#506735)  - Fix default
configuration (#509251)  - Many new loadable modules including mod_ctrls_admin
and mod_wrap2  - National Language Support (RFC 2640)  - Enable/disable common
features in /etc/sysconfig/proftpd
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Mon Sep  7 2009 Paul Howarth  1.3.2a-5
- Add upstream patch for MLSD with dirnames containing glob chars (#521634)
* Wed Sep  2 2009 Paul Howarth  1.3.2a-4
- New DSO module: mod_exec (#520214)
* Fri Aug 21 2009 Tomas Mraz  - 1.3.2a-3.1
- Rebuilt with new openssl
* Wed Aug 19 2009 Paul Howarth  1.3.2a-3
- Use mod_vroot to work around PAM/chroot issues (#477120, #506735)
* Fri Jul 31 2009 Paul Howarth  1.3.2a-2
- Add upstream patch to fix parallel build (http://bugs.proftpd.org/3189)
* Mon Jul 27 2009 Paul Howarth  1.3.2a-1
- Update to 1.3.2a
- Add patch to reinstate support for -DPARAMETER (http://bugs.proftpd.org/3221)
- Retain CAP_AUDIT_WRITE, needed for pam_loginuid (#506735, fixed upstream)
- Remove ScoreboardFile directive from configuration file - default value
  works better with SELinux (#498375)
- Ship mod_quotatab_sql.so in the main package rather than the SQL backend
  subpackages
- New DSO modules:
  - mod_ctrls_admin
  - mod_facl
  - mod_load
  - mod_quotatab_radius
  - mod_radius
  - mod_ratio
  - mod_rewrite
  - mod_site_misc
  - mod_wrap2
  - mod_wrap2_file
  - mod_wrap2_sql
- Enable mod_lang/nls support for RFC 2640 (and buildreq gettext)
- Add /etc/sysconfig/proftpd to set PROFTPD_OPTIONS and update initscript to
  use this value so we can use a define to enable (e.g.) anonymous FTP support
  rather than having a huge commented-out section in the config file
- Rewrite config file to remove most settings that don't change upstream
  defaults, and add brief descriptions for all available loadable modules
- Move Umask and IdentLookups settings from server config to  context
  so that they apply to all servers, including virtual hosts (#509251)
- Ensure mod_ifsession is always the last one specified, which makes sure that
  mod_ifsession's changes are seen properly by other modules
- Drop pam version requirement - all targets have sufficiently recent version
- Drop redundant explicit dependency on pam
- Subpackages don't need to own %{_libexecdir}/proftpd directory
- Drop redundant krb5-devel buildreq
- Make SRPM back-compatible with EPEL-4 (TLS cert dirs, PAM config)
- Don't include README files for non-Linux platforms
- Recode ChangeLog as UTF-8
- Don't ship the prxs tool for building custom DSO's since we don't ship the
  headers either
- Prevent stripping of binaries in a slightly more robust way
- Fix release tag to be ready for future beta/rc versions
- Define RPM macros in global scope
- BuildRequire libcap-devel so that we use the system library rather than the
  bundled one, and eliminate log messages like:
  kernel: warning: `proftpd' uses 32-bit capabilities (legacy support in use)
* Sun Jul 26 2009 Fedora Release Engineering  - 1.3.2-3.1
- Rebuilt for https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_12_Mass_Rebuild
* Thu Apr  9 2009 Matthias Saou  1.3.2-2.1
- Update the tcp_wrappers BR to be just /usr/include/tcpd.h instead.
* Thu Apr  9 2009 Matthias Saou  1.3.2-2
- Fix tcp_wrappers-devel BR conditional.
* Mon Apr  6 2009 Matthias Saou  1.3.2-1
- Update to 1.3.2.
- Include mod_wrap (#479813).
- Tried to include mod_wrap2* modules but build failed.
* Thu Feb 26 2009 Fedora Release Engineering 
- Rebuilt for https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_11_Mass_Rebuild
* Sat Jan 24 2009 Caolán McNamara 1.3.2-0.3.rc3
- Rebuild for dependencies
* Fri Jan  2 2009 Matthias Saou  1.3.2-0.2.rc3
- Update default configuration to have a lit of available modules and more
  example configuration for them.
* Mon Dec 22 2008 Matthias Saou  1.3.2-0.1.rc3
- Update to 1.3.2rc3 (fixes security issue #464127)
- Exclude new pkgconfig file, as we already exclude header files (if someone
  ever needs to rebuild something against this proftpd, just ask and I'll split
  out a devel package... but it seems pretty useless currently).
- Remove no longer needed find-umode_t patch.
