Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update, to the current upstream maintenance release, fixes a
large number of bugs (see NEWS for details), and also a couple of
security issues :

- Plaintext command injection vulnerability in FTPS
implementation (i.e. mod_tls). See
http://bugs.proftpd.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3624 for
details.

- CVE-2011-1137 (badly formed SSH messages cause DoS). See
http://bugs.proftpd.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3586 for
details.

Other highlights include :

- Display messages work properly again.

- Performance improvements, especially during server
startup/restarts.

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.
