SuSE 11.1 Security Update : pure-ftpd (SAT Patch Number 5091)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 57130


The remote SuSE 11 host is missing a security update.


The OES Netware add-ons in pure-ftpd had a security problem and some bugs, which are fixed by this update.

A local attacker could overwrite local files when the OES remote server feature of pure-ftpd is enabled due to a directory traversal.

Additionally the following bugs have been fixed :

- FTP remote server navigation does not always succeed.

- pure-ftpd does not throw an error when the name resolution fails during remote server navigation.

- put files into NCP volumes fails. (bnc#700335)

- remote_server feature opens a vulnerability with directory traversal & file overwriting. (bnc#703035)
