    Package        : gftp
    Problem type   : printf format attack
    Debian-specific: no
    
    The gftp package as distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 has a problem
    in its logging code: it logged data received from the network but it did
    not protect itself from printf format attacks. An attacker can use this
    by making a FTP server return special responses that exploit this.
    
    This has been fixed in version 2.0.6a-3.1, and we recommend that you
    upgrade your gftp package.
    
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    
    Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
    ---------------------------------
    
      Potato was released for alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc.
