lukemftpd(8) is an enhanced BSD FTP server produced
within the NetBSD project. The sources for lukemftpd are
shipped with some versions of FreeBSD, however it is not
built or installed by default. The build system option
WANT_LUKEMFTPD must be set to build and install lukemftpd.
[NOTE: An exception is FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE,
wherein lukemftpd was installed, but not enabled, by
Przemyslaw Frasunek discovered several vulnerabilities
in lukemftpd arising from races in the out-of-band signal
handling code used to implement the ABOR command. As a
result of these races, the internal state of the FTP server
may be manipulated in unexpected ways.
A remote attacker may be able to cause FTP commands to
be executed with the privileges of the running lukemftpd
process. This may be a low-privilege
ftp' user if the-r'
command line option is specified, or it may be superuser
privileges if `-r' is not specified.
