                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory
                                

Package name:           wu-ftpd
Date:                   January 10th, 2001
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2001:001

Affected versions:      6.0, 6.1, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2

Problem Description:

WireX discovered a temporary file creation bug in the 2.6.1 release of wu-ftpd. The problem exists in the privatepw helper program. As well, Linux-Mandrake 7.2 users must update to this package as it fixes security problems as discussed in the prior advisory, MDKSA-2000:014, which had not been previously addressed for 7.2.


Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of the downloaded package. You can do this with the command:
rpm --checksig package.rpm
You can get the GPG public key of the Linux-Mandrake Security Team at
http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/security/RPM-GPG-KEYS
If you use MandrakeUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG signature is performed automatically for you.

To upgrade automatically, use <<MandrakeUpdate>>.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one of our FTP server mirrors and uprade with "rpm -Uvh package_name".

You can download the updates directly from:
ftp://ftp.linux.tucows.com/pub/distributions/Mandrake/Mandrake/updates
ftp://ftp.free.fr/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrake/updates

Or try one of the other mirrors listed at:

http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory. For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for Linux-Mandrake 7.1, look for it in "updates/7.1/RPMS/". Updated source RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to update, so if you want an immediate upgrade, please use one of the two above-listed mirrors.
