    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-5815 CVE-2006-6170 CVE-2006-6171
    Debian Bug     : 399070
    Due to technical problems yesterday's proftpd update lacked a build for
    the amd64 architecture, which is now available.
    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the proftpd FTP
    daemon, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or denial
    of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
    the following problems:
        It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the sreplace() function
        may lead to denial of service and possibly the execution of arbitrary
        It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the mod_tls addon module
        may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
        It was discovered that insufficient validation of FTP command buffer
        size limits may lead to denial of service. Due to unclear information
        this issue was already fixed in DSA-1218 as CVE-2006-5815.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problem has been fixed in version
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3.0-16 of the proftpd-dfsg package.
    We recommend that you upgrade your proftpd package.
