    Package        : gftp
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0372
    
    Albert Puigsech Galicia discovered a directory traversal vulnerability
    in a proprietary FTP client (CAN-2004-1376) which is also present in
    gftp, a GTK+ FTP client.  A malicious server could provide a specially
    crafted filename that could cause arbitrary files to be overwritten or
    created by the client.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.11-1woody1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.18-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gftp package.
