Fedora 12 : proftpd-1.3.2c-1.fc12 (2009-13250)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 43604
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update addresses CVE-2009-3555 (SSL/TLS renegotiation vulnerability), mitigating the problem by refusing all client-initiated SSL/TLS session renegotiations. This update to the latest maintenance release also fixes a number of bugs recorded in the proftpd bug tracker: - SSL/TLS renegotiation vulnerability (CVE-2009-3555, bug 3324) - Failed database transaction can cause mod_quotatab to loop (bug 3228) - Segfault in mod_wrap (bug 3332) - <Directory> sections can have <Limit> problems (bug 3337) - mod_wrap2 segfaults when a valid user retries the USER command (bug 3341) - mod_auth_file handles 'getgroups' request incorrectly (bug 3347) - Segfault caused by scrubbing zero- length portion of memory (bug 3350) Finally, the behaviour of the MLSD FTP command (used in many modern FTP clients to list directories) is fixed for the case when the FTP server's configuration disallows its usage (using a <Limit> clause) in some but not all places (#544002).
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.
