Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Wietse Venema and Victor Duchovni discovered and reported an issue
that could lead to a potential information disclosure.

An unencrypted FTP command immediately following STARTTLS request
would get buffered and processed prior to SSL/TLS handshake, resulting
in potential authentication bypass in case a client certificate
authentication was configured to provide user identity.

A report of similar issue that was originally discovered in Postfix
MTA contains further technical details and discusses possible impact:
http://www.postfix.org/CVE-2011-0411.html

Users of pure-ftpd are advised to install this updated package which
contains a fix for the issue.
