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 stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
For the testing (jessie) unstable (sid) distributions, this problem will
