Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200711-01
(gFTP: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Kalle Olavi Niemitalo discovered two boundary errors in fsplib code
included in gFTP when processing overly long directory or file names.

Impact :

A remote attacker could trigger these vulnerabilities by enticing a
user to download a file with a specially crafted directory or file
name, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code
(CVE-2007-3962) or a Denial of Service (CVE-2007-3961).

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
