Vulnerability Assessment Summary
SSA-2003-259-03 WU-FTPD Security Advisory

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Upgraded WU-FTPD packages are available for Slackware 9.0 and
- -current. These fix a problem where a possible hacker could use a
specially crafted filename in conjunction with WU-FTPD's
conversion feature (mostly used to compress files, or produce tar
archives) to execute arbitrary commands on the server.

In addition, a MAIL_ADMIN which has been found to be insecure has
been disabled.

We do not recommend deploying WU-FTPD in situations where security
is required.
