    Package        : wu-ftpd
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0148 CAN-2004-0185
    
    Two vulnerabilities were discovered in wu-ftpd:
    
     CAN-2004-0148 - Glenn Stewart discovered that users could bypass the
     directory access restrictions imposed by the restricted-gid option by
     changing the permissions on their home directory.  On a subsequent
     login, when access to the user's home directory was denied, wu-ftpd
     would fall back to the root directory.
    
     CAN-2004-0185 - A buffer overflow existed in wu-ftpd's code which
     deals with S/key authentication.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6.2-3woody4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6.2-17.1.
    
    We recommend that you update your wu-ftpd package.
