Fedora 13 : proftpd-1.3.3e-1.fc13 (2011-5033)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53458
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update, to the current upstream maintenance release, fixes a large number of bugs (see NEWS for details), and also a couple of security issues :
- Plaintext command injection vulnerability in FTPS implementation (i.e. mod_tls). See http://bugs.proftpd.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3624 for details.
- CVE-2011-1137 (badly formed SSH messages cause DoS). See http://bugs.proftpd.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3586 for details.
Other highlights include :
- Display messages work properly again.
- Performance improvements, especially during server startup/restarts.
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.
