Fedora 9 : proftpd-1.3.1-8.fc9 (2009-0064)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 35389
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update fixes a security issue where an attacker could conduct cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks and execute arbitrary FTP commands. It also fixes some SSL shutdown issues seen with certain clients.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected proftpd package.
