    Package        : wu-ftpd
    Vulnerability  : temp file creation and format string
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Security people at WireX have noticed a temp file creation bug and the
    WU-FTPD development team has found a possible format string bug in
    wu-ftpd.  Both could be remotely exploited, though no such exploit
    exists currently.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your wu-ftpd package 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.
