Debian DSA-2346-2 : proftpd-dfsg - several vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 56850


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Several vulnerabilities were discovered in ProFTPD, an FTP server :

- (No CVE id) ProFTPD incorrectly uses data from an unencrypted input buffer after encryption has been enabled with STARTTLS, an issue similar to CVE-2011-0411.

- CVE-2011-4130 ProFTPD uses a response pool after freeing it under exceptional conditions, possibly leading to remote code execution. (The version in lenny is not affected by this problem.)


Upgrade the proftpd-dfsg packages.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.1-17lenny9.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.3a-6squeeze4.
