    1. Problem Description
    
      The wu-ftp FTP server does not do proper bounds checking while processing
      the SITE EXEC command.
    
    2. Impact
    
      An remote attacker could execute arbitrary machine code as root on a FTP
      server using wu-ftpd.
    
      This bug could only be exploited if anonymous access to the FTP server
      is allowed.
    
    3. Solution
    
      We recommend using our audited 2.4er version of wu-ftpd.
    
      Update the package from our FTP server.
