The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
It was discovered that LFTP incorrectly filtered filenames suggested
by Content-Disposition headers. If a user or automated system were
tricked into downloading a file from a malicious site, a remote
attacker could create the file with an arbitrary name, such as a
dotfile, and possibly run arbitrary code.
Update the affected lftp package.
