Package : proftpd Vulnerability : several Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2006-5815 CVE-2006-6170 CVE-2006-6171 Debian Bug : 399070
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:
It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the sreplace() function may lead to denial of service and possibly the execution of arbitrary code.
It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the mod_tls addon module may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
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.
