Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : proftpd (MDKSA-2004:041)
High Nessus Plugin ID 14140
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA portability workaround that was applied in version 1.2.9 of the ProFTPD FTP server caused CIDR based ACL entries in 'Allow' and 'Deny' directives to act like an 'AllowAll' directive. This granted FTP clients access to files and directories that the server configuration may have been explicitly denying.
This problem only exists in version 1.2.9 and has been fixed upstream.
A patch has been applied to correct the problem.
SolutionUpdate the affected proftpd and / or proftpd-anonymous packages.
