Title: ProFTPD: Denial of service (GLSA 202009-11)
Exploitable: local, remote
A vulnerability in ProFTPD could lead to a Denial of Service
ProFTPD is an advanced and very configurable FTP server.
Vulnerable: < 1.3.7a
Unaffected: >= 1.3.7a
Architectures: All supported architectures
It was found that ProFTPD did not properly handle invalid SCP commands.
An authenticated remote attacker could issue invalid SCP commands,
possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ProFTPD users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-ftp/proftpd-1.3.7a"
command leads to null pointer dereference
