Description

Knud Erik Højgaard discovered a vulnerability in moxftp (and xftp respectively), an Athena X interface to FTP. Insufficient bounds checking could lead to execution of arbitrary code, provided by a malicious FTP server. Erik Tews fixed this.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 2.2-18.1.

For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed in version 2.2-13.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 2.2-18.20.

We recommend that you upgrade your xftp package.
