Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200411-31 (ProZilla: Multiple vulnerabilities)

ProZilla contains several exploitable buffer overflows in the code     handling the network protocols.

Impact :

A remote attacker could setup a malicious server and entice a user to     retrieve files from that server using ProZilla. This could lead to the     execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running     ProZilla.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
