    Kingcope discovered that the mod_sftp and mod_sftp_pam modules of
    proftpd, a powerful modular FTP/SFTP/FTPS server, are not properly
    validating input, before making pool allocations. An attacker can
    use this flaw to conduct denial of service attacks against the system
    running proftpd (resource exhaustion).
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3.3a-6squeeze7.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3.4a-5+deb7u1.
    
    For the testing (jessie) unstable (sid) distributions, this problem will
    be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your proftpd-dfsg packages.
