Applikationen: ProFTPD


Name        : proftpd
Product : Fedora 18
Version : 1.3.4b
Release : 5.fc18
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

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

Update Information:

Jann Horn reported that there is a possible race condition in the handling of
the MKD/XMKD FTP commands, when the UserOwner directive is involved, and the attacker is on the same physical machine as a running proftpd. This race applies to mod_sftp and the handling of the MKDIR SFTP request as well.

Note that using the DefaultRoot directive to restrict sessions mitigates this
attack, since the symlinks created by the local attacker will point outside of the chroot(2) area within the FTP session, and thus the ownership change will fail. The default configuration in Fedora applies the DefaultRoot directive to all users except "adm".

The upstream reference for this issue is:

This update includes upstream's backport to proftpd 1.3.4 of the fix for
this issue.
