AFFECTED CONECTIVA VERSIONS : servidor-1.0 3.0 4.0 4.0es 4.1 4.2 5.0


DESCRIPTION
This is a new release. Our previous -10cl release didn't fix the problem. wu-ftpd package version 2.6.0 and below has a buffer overflow that can be remotely exploited and give an attacker root privileges on the remote machine.

SOLUTION
All users of wu-ftpd MUST upgrade immediately. The updated packages contain a patch to fix this vulnerability. Users of "Conectiva Linux 3.0" can use the packages supplied for "servidor-1.0". Please note that the -10cl packages released earlier today didn't correct this problem.
