Debian Security Advisory DSA-016-3 email@example.com http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze January 24, 2001
Package : wu-ftpd Vulnerability : temp file creation and format string Debian-specific: noSecurity people at WireX have noticed a temp file creation bug and the WU-FTPD development team has found a possible format string bug in wu-ftpd. Both could be remotely exploited, though no such exploit exists currently.
This additional advisory only announces a recompile of the package for the Intel ia32 architecture. The upload from yesterday was lacking PAM support. This only required a recompile and contains no other fixes. (Sorry, but when I make a mistake, I have to make it real, this time it's the correct file).
For upgrading please use
wget url will fetch the file for you dpkg -i file.deb will install the referenced file.Or use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.
