FreeBSD : lftp -- multiple HTTP client download filename vulnerability (29b7e3f4-b6a9-11df-ae63-f255a795cb21)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

The get1 command, as used by lftpget, in LFTP before 4.0.6 does not
properly validate a server-provided filename before determining the
destination filename of a download, which allows remote servers to
create or overwrite arbitrary files via a Content-Disposition header
that suggests a crafted filename, and possibly execute arbitrary code
as a consequence of writing to a dotfile in a home directory.
