    We have found that the ftpwatch package as distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 1.3 and later distributions has a security problem which makes it trivial for users to gain root access.

    We recommend that you remove the ftpwatch package immediately.
    
    We will be working on a new version of ftpwatch to address these issues and
    will announce that in a new advisory.
