Normally, printf-style format bugs like this one would be stopped by FormatGuard, but FormatGuard is only effective at protecting applications that use the printf-like family of functions found in glibc. gftp uses string formatting functions found in GLib (the GTK+ library, not glibc) which bypass FormatGuard protection.
The following packages fix this problem.
