    Package        : linux-ftpd-ssl
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3524
    Debian Bug     : 339074
    
    A buffer overflow has been discovered in ftpd-ssl, a simple BSD FTP
    server with SSL encryption support, that could lead to the execution
    of arbitrary code.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain linux-ftpd-ssl
    packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.17.18+0.3-3sarge1
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ftpd-ssl package.
