Fedora 23 : proftpd-1.3.5b-1.fc23 (2016-977d57cf2d)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 90042


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Cumulative maintenance release from upstream. Highlights are: * SSH RSA hostkeys smaller than 2048 bits now work properly. * MLSD response lines are now properly CRLF terminated. * Fixed selection of DH groups from TLSDHParamFile (CVE-2016-3125). Various other bug fixes are also included.

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.
