    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0203
    
    Knud Erik Højgaard discovered a vulnerability in moxftp (and xftp
    respectively), an Athena X interface to FTP.  Insufficient bounds
    checking could lead to execution of arbitrary code, provided by a
    malicious FTP server.   Erik Tews fixed this.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.2-18.1.
