Package: wu-ftpd (wu-ftpd-academ)
Vulnerability: remote root exploit
Debian-specific: no

The version of wu-ftpd distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 (a.k.a. slink), as well as in the frozen (potato) and unstable (woody) distributions, is vulnerable to a remote root compromise. The default configuration in all current Debian packages prevents the currently available exploits in the case of anonymous access, although local users could still possibly compromise the server.

This has been fixed in versions 2.4.2.16-13.1 (for slink) and 2.6.0-5.1 (for potato and woody), and we recommend that you update your wu-ftpd-academ (for slink) or wu-ftpd (for potato and woody) package immediately.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink


This version of Debian was released only for Intel ia32, the Motorola 680x0, the Alpha, and the Sun Sparc architecture. Fixes for Intel ia32 and the Sun Sparc architecture are currently available; fixes for other architectures will be available soon.
