Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in ProFTPD, the worst of which
leading to remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

ProFTPD is an advanced and very configurable FTP server.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-ftp/proftpd              < 1.3.4d                  >= 1.3.4d

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in ProFTPD. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A context-dependent attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the process, perform man-in-the-middle attacks to
spoof arbitrary SSL servers, cause a Denial of Service condition, or
read and modify arbitrary files.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All ProFTPD users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-ftp/proftpd-1.3.4d"
