Package        : proftpd
Vulnerability  : remote DOS & potential buffer overflow
Debian-specific: no

In Debian Security Advisory DSA 029-1 we have reported several
vulnerabilities in proftpd that have been fixed. For details please
read the main advisory. This upload fixes:

1. A memory leak which can result in a denial of service, as
reported by Wojciech Purczynski. The default configuration of
proftpd in Debian is not vulnerable.

2. A similar memory leak affects the USER command, also as
reported by Wojciech Purczynski.

3. Format string vulnerabilities reported by Przemyslaw

The most recent advisory covering proftpd missed one
architecture that was released with Debian GNU/Linux 2.2. Therefore
this advisory is only an addition to DSA 029-1 and only adds the
relevant package for the Motorola 680×0 architecture.

We recommend you upgrade your sudo packages for m68k

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

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato

Potato was released for the alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and
sparc architectures.

Motorola 680×0 architecture:
