-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

We have received reports that the proftpd package as distributed
in Debian GNU/Linux 2.0 is vulnerable to a buffer overflow. Using this
vulnerability, known as palmetto, it is possible to gain shell access or
otherwise circumvent normal login access and logging mechanisms.

This has been fixed in version 1.2.0pre1-2

We recommend you upgrade your proftpd package immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
