Debian Security Advisory DSA 686-1 security@debian.org

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : gftp
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-0372

Albert Puigsech Galicia discovered a directory traversal vulnerability in a proprietary FTP client (CAN-2004-1376) which is also present in gftp, a GTK+ FTP client. A malicious server could provide a specially crafted filename that could cause arbitrary files to be overwritten or created by the client.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.11-1woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.18-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gftp package.

Upgrade Instructions
