Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in lftp :

The get1 command, as used by lftpget, in LFTP before 4.0.6 does not properly validate a server-provided filename before determining the destination filename of a download, which allows remote servers to create or overwrite arbitrary files via a Content-Disposition header that suggests a crafted filename, and possibly execute arbitrary code as a consequence of writing to a dotfile in a home directory (CVE-2010-2251).

Packages for 2008.0 and 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:

Additionally on 2008.0 lftp has been upgraded to 3.7.4.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
