Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: ProFTPD: Remote code execution (GLSA 201908-16)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2019-08-15
Bug(s): #690528
ID: 201908-16

Synopsis

A vulnerability in ProFTPD could result in the arbitrary execution
of code.


Background

ProFTPD is an advanced and very configurable FTP server.

Affected Packages

Package: net-ftp/proftpd
Vulnerable: < 1.3.6-r5
Unaffected: >= 1.3.6-r5
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

It was discovered that ProFTPD’s “mod_copy” module does not
properly restrict privileges for anonymous users.


Impact

A remote attacker, by anonymously uploading a malicious file, could
possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, cause
a Denial of Service condition or disclose information.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All ProFTPD users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-ftp/proftpd-1.3.6-r5"
