    Package        : proftpd
    Vulnerability  : remote DOS & potential buffer overflow
    Debian-specific: no
    
    In Debian Security Advisory DSA 029-1 we have reported several
    vulnerabilities in proftpd that have been fixed.  For details please
    read the main advisory.  This upload fixes:
    
     1. A memory leak which can result in a denial of service, as reported
        by Wojciech Purczynski.  The default configuration of proftpd
        in Debian is not vulnerable.
    
     2. A similar memory leak affects the USER command, also as reported
        by Wojciech Purczynski.
    
     3. Format string vulnerabilities reported by Przemyslaw Frasunek.
    
    The most recent advisory covering proftpd missed one architecture that
    was released with Debian GNU/Linux 2.2.  Therefore this advisory is
    only an addition to DSA 029-1 and only adds the relevant package for
    the Motorola 680x0 architecture.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your sudo packages for m68k immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
    
    
    Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
    ------------------------------------
    
      Potato was released for the alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc
      architectures.
    
    
      Motorola 680x0 architecture:
    
         http://security.debian.org/dists/stable/updates/main/binary-m68k/proftpd_1.2.0pre10-2potato1_m68k.deb
          MD5 checksum: 96315bb133a487e81944e6cef2358d09
    
    
      These files will be moved into
       ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/stable/*/binary-$arch/ soon.
    
    For not yet released architectures please refer to the appropriate
    directory  ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/sid/binary-$arch/ .
