[SECURITY] Fedora 12 Update: proftpd-1.3.2c-1.fc12



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-13250
2009-12-16 00:20:38
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : proftpd
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 1.3.2c
Release     : 1.fc12
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 addresses CVE-2009-3555 (SSL/TLS renegotiation vulnerability),
mitigating the problem by refusing all client-initiated SSL/TLS session
renegotiations.    This update to the latest maintenance release also fixes a
number of bugs recorded in the proftpd bug tracker:    - SSL/TLS renegotiation
vulnerability (CVE-2009-3555, bug 3324)  - Failed database transaction can cause
mod_quotatab to loop (bug 3228)  - Segfault in mod_wrap (bug 3332)  -
<Directory> sections can have <Limit> problems (bug 3337)  - mod_wrap2 segfaults
when a valid user retries the USER command (bug 3341)  - mod_auth_file handles
'getgroups' request incorrectly (bug 3347)  - Segfault caused by scrubbing zero-
length portion of memory (bug 3350)    Finally, the behaviour of the MLSD FTP
command (used in many modern FTP clients to list directories) is fixed for the
case when the FTP server's configuration disallows its usage (using a <Limit>
clause) in some but not all places (#544002).
