    Package        : proftpd
    Vulnerability  : potential code execution
    Problem-Type   : format string error
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2390
    
    infamous42md reported that proftpd suffers from two format string
    vulnerabilities. In the first, a user with the ability to create a
    directory could trigger the format string error if there is a
    proftpd shutdown message configured to use the "%C", "%R", or "%U"
    variables. In the second, the error is triggered if mod_sql is used
    to retrieve messages from a database and if format strings have been
    inserted into the database by a user with permission to do so.
    
    There was a build error for the sarge i386 proftpd packages released
    in DSA 795-1. A new build, 1.2.10-15sarge1.0.1, has been prepared to
    correct this error. The packages for other architectures are
    unaffected.
