The ProFTPD release notes states :
sean <infamous42md at hotpop.com> found two format string
vulnerabilities, one in mod_sql's SQLShowInfo directive, and one
involving the 'ftpshut' utility. Both can be considered low risk, as
they require active involvement on the part of the site administrator
in order to be exploited.
These vulnerabilities could potentially lead to information
disclosure, a denial-of-server situation, or execution of arbitrary
code with the permissions of the user running ProFTPD.
