Debian Security Advisory DSA 795-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Michael Stone
September 1st, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : proftpd
Vulnerability : potential code execution
Problem-Type : format string error
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2390

infamous42md reported that proftpd suffers from two format string
vulnerabilities. In the first, a user with the ability to create a
directory could trigger the format string error if there is a
proftpd shutdown message configured to use the "%C", "%R", or "%U"
variables. In the second, the error is triggered if mod_sql is used
to retrieve messages from a database and if format strings have been
inserted into the database by a user with permission to do so.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by these
vulnerabilities.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2.10-15sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2.10-20.

We recommend that you upgrade your proftpd package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
