Debian Security Advisory DSA-2767-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Nico Golde September 29, 2013 http://www.debian.org/security/faq

Package : proftpd-dfsg Vulnerability : denial of service Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2013-4359 Debian Bug : 723179

Kingcope discovered that the mod_sftp and mod_sftp_pam modules of proftpd, a powerful modular FTP/SFTP/FTPS server, are not properly validating input, before making pool allocations. An attacker can use this flaw to conduct denial of service attacks against the system running proftpd (resource exhaustion).

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.3a-6squeeze7.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.4a-5+deb7u1.

For the testing (jessie) unstable (sid) distributions, this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your proftpd-dfsg packages.
