high Nessus Plugin ID 14098
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.


A buffer overflow vulnerability was discovered by Ulf Harnhammar in the lftp FTP client when connecting to a web server using HTTP or HTTPS and using the 'ls' or 'rels' command on specially prepared directory. This vulnerability exists in lftp versions 2.3.0 through 2.6.9 and is corrected upstream in 2.6.10.

The updated packages are patched to protect against this problem.


Update the affected lftp package.
