Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA314] DSA-314-1 atftp

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-314-1 atftp

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Rick Patel discovered that atftpd is vulnerable to a buffer overflow
when a long filename is sent to the server. A possible hacker could exploit
this bug remotely to execute arbitrary code on the server.
For the stable distribution (woody), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.6.1.1.0woody1.
The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain an atftp
package.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you update your atftp package.
