Fedora Update Notification
2007-11-05 15:10:51.668203

Name        : proftpd
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 1.3.1
Release     : 2.fc7
URL         : http://www.proftpd.org/
Summary     : Flexible, stable and highly-configurable FTP server
Description :
ProFTPD is an enhanced FTP server with a focus toward simplicity, security,
and ease of configuration. It features a very Apache-like configuration
syntax, and a highly customizable server infrastructure, including support for
multiple 'virtual' FTP servers, anonymous FTP, and permission-based directory

This package defaults to the standalone behaviour of ProFTPD, but all the
needed scripts to have it run by xinetd instead are included.

Update Information:

The Auth API in ProFTPD before 20070417, when multiple simultaneous
authentication modules are configured, does not require that the module that checks authentication is the same as the module that retrieves authentication data, which might allow remote attackers to bypass authentication, as demonstrated by use of SQLAuthTypes Plaintext in mod_sql, with data retrieved from /etc/passwd.

* Mon Oct 22 2007 Matthias Saou <http://freshrpms.net/> 1.3.1-2

- Update to 1.3.1rc3 (the only version to fix #237533 aka CVE-2007-2165).
- Remove all patches, none are useful anymore.
- Patch sstrncpy.c for config.h not being included (reported upstream #2964).

- Exclude new headers, at least until some first 3rd party module shows up.

- LSB-ize the init script (#247033).
- Explicitly pass --enable-openssl since configure tells us "(default=no)".
