Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA057] DSA-057-1 gftp

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-057-1 gftp

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The gftp package as distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 has a problem
in its logging code: it logged data received from the network but it did
not protect itself from printf format attacks. A possible hacker can use this
by making an FTP server return special responses that exploit this.

This has been fixed in version 2.0.6a-3.1, and we recommend that you
upgrade your gftp package.

Note: this advisory was posted as DSA-055-1 by mistake.
