Fedora 15 : proftpd-1.3.4-0.8.rc2.fc15 (2011-5098)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 53460


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


The second release candidate for proftpd 1.3.4.

This includes fixes for a number of security issues :

- Plaintext command injection vulnerability in FTPS implementation

- Badly formed SSH messages cause DoS

- Limit recursion depth for untrusted regular expressions (#673040)

The update also contains a large number of bug fixes over release candidate 1, plus new support for SSL session caching using memcached.

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.


Update the affected proftpd package.
