Fedora 14 : proftpd-1.3.3g-1.fc14 (2011-15741)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update, to the current (and final) release for the 1.3.3
maintenance branch, includes a pair of security fixes :

- Enable OpenSSL countermeasure against SSLv3/TLSv1 BEAST
attacks (upstream bug 3704); to disable this
countermeasure, which may cause interoperability issues
with some clients, use the NoEmptyFragments TLSOption

- Response pool use-after-free memory corruption error
(upstream bug 3711, #752812, ZDI-CAN-1420), in which a
remote attacker could provide a specially crafted
request (resulting in a need for the server to handle
an exceptional condition), leading to memory
corruption and potentially arbitrary code execution,
with the privileges of the user running the proftpd
server

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.
