GLSA-200701-09 : oftpd: Denial of Service
High Nessus Plugin ID 24207
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-09 (oftpd: Denial of Service)
By specifying an unsupported address family in the arguments to a LPRT or LPASV command, an assertion in oftpd will cause the daemon to abort.
Remote, unauthenticated attackers may be able to terminate any oftpd process, denying service to legitimate users.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll oftpd users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-ftp/oftpd-0.3.7-r3'
