The Yellow Dog Linux Security Team has just released three packages which fix recently discovered security vulnerabilities.
Packages: proftpd, wu-ftpd, beroftpd
Thanks goes out to the wu-ftpd development group and the members of BugTraq for discovering and fixing this problem.
proftpd is the default FTP server installed with Yellow Dog Linux. You only need to upgrade it unless you have manually installed either wu-ftpd or beroftpd from the extras directory.
Be sure to restart inetd once you have upgraded your ftp server. You can do this by executing the following as root: /etc/rc.d/init.d/inet restart
Here are the md5 checksums of the update packages, please verify these before installing the new packages by running: md5sum <file>
Users of Champion Server 1.0 can also, and are strongly advised to upgrade their ftp server.
