Fedora 7 : proftpd-1.3.1-2.fc7 (2007-2613)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

The Auth API in ProFTPD before 20070417, when multiple simultaneous
authentication modules are configured, does not require that the
module that checks authentication is the same as the module that
retrieves authentication data, which might allow remote attackers to
bypass authentication, as demonstrated by use of SQLAuthTypes
Plaintext in mod_sql, with data retrieved from /etc/passwd.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
