MGASA-2021-0380 - Updated filezilla packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 27 Jul 2021
URL: https://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2021-0380.html
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases: 8
CVE: CVE-2020-14002

filezilla embeds a PuTTY client that was vulnerable:
PuTTY 0.68 through 0.73 has an Observable Discrepancy leading to an
information leak in the algorithm negotiation. This allows man-in-the-middle
attackers to target initial connection attempts (where no host key for the 
server has been cached by the client) (CVE-2020-14002).

The filezilla packages are updated to fix this issue to 3.55.0 version among
other bugfixes since 3.51.0 we shipped in Mageia 8. See upstream release notes
for more informations.
