[SECURITY] Fedora 11 Update: proftpd-1.3.2b-1.fc11



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-11649
2009-11-18 13:31:57
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : proftpd
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 1.3.2b
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://www.proftpd.org/
Summary     : Flexible, stable and highly-configurable FTP server
Description :
ProFTPD is an enhanced FTP server with a focus toward simplicity, security,
and ease of configuration. It features a very Apache-like configuration
syntax, and a highly customizable server infrastructure, including support for
multiple 'virtual' FTP servers, anonymous FTP, and permission-based directory
visibility.

This package defaults to the standalone behaviour of ProFTPD, but all the
needed scripts to have it run by xinetd instead are included.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update fixes CVE-2009-3639, in which proftpd's mod_tls, when the
dNSNameRequired TLS option is enabled, does not properly handle a '\0' character
in a domain name in the Subject Alternative Name field of an X.509 client
certificate. This allows remote attackers to bypass intended client-hostname
restrictions via a crafted certificate issued by a legitimate Certification
Authority.    This update to upstream release 1.3.2b also fixes the following
issues recorded in the proftpd bug tracker at bugs.proftpd.org:    - Regression
causing command-line define options not to work (bug 3221)  - Use correct cached
user values with "SQLNegativeCache on" (bug 3282)  - Slower transfers of
multiple small files (bug 3284)  - Support MaxTransfersPerHost,
MaxTransfersPerUser properly (bug 3287)  - Handle symlinks to directories with
trailing slashes properly (bug 3297)

- Enable mod_lang/nls support for RFC 2640 (and buildreq gettext)

  use this value so we can use a define to enable (e.g.) anonymous FTP support
  rather than having a huge commented-out section in the config file
- Rewrite config file to remove most settings that don't change upstream
  defaults, and add brief descriptions for all available loadable modules
- Move Umask and IdentLookups settings from server config to <Global> context
  so that they apply to all servers, including virtual hosts (#509251)

- Make SRPM back-compatible with EPEL-4 (TLS cert dirs, PAM config)
- Don't include README files for non-Linux platforms
- Recode ChangeLog as UTF-8
- Don't ship the prxs tool for building custom DSO's since we don't ship the
  headers either
- Prevent stripping of binaries in a slightly more robust way
- Fix release tag to be ready for future beta/rc versions
- Define RPM macros in global scope
- BuildRequire libcap-devel so that we use the system library rather than the
  bundled one, and eliminate log messages like:
