Two problems have been discovered:

– two potential buffer overflows, which could make the server
execute arbitrary code if exploited

– a memory usage condition problem, where a user could make the
server consume huge amounts of memory, eventually rendering the
system unusable.

Problem mentioned by CERT advisort CA-99.13.

Please upgrade to:

b8e916297a78253fa29ce99d96d147ce wu-ftpd-2.6.0-1mdk.i586.rpm (binary)
d647bd1b73149fbc7975c747f1863d35 wu-ftpd-2.6.0-1mdk.src.rpm (source)
