    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in ProFTPD, an FTP server:
    
    	ProFTPD incorrectly uses data from an unencrypted input buffer
    	after encryption has been enabled with STARTTLS, an issue
    	similar to CVE-2011-0411.
    
    CVE-2011-4130
    	ProFTPD uses a response pool after freeing it under
    	exceptional conditions, possibly leading to remote code
    	execution.  (The version in lenny is not affected by this
    	problem.)
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3.1-17lenny8.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3.3a-6squeeze4.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.4~rc3-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your proftpd-dfsg packages.
