Title: Pure-FTPd: Potential DoS when maximum connections is reached (GLSA 200407-04)
Date: July 04, 2004
Updated: May 22, 2006
Pure-FTPd contains a bug potentially allowing a Denial of Service attack when the maximum number of connections is reached.
Pure-FTPd is a fast, production-quality and standards-compliant FTP server.
Vulnerable: <= 1.0.18
Unaffected: >= 1.0.18-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Pure-FTPd contains a bug in the accept_client function handling the setup of new connections.
When the maximum number of connections is reached an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to perform a Denial of Service attack.
There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest available version.
All Pure-FTPd users should upgrade to the latest stable version:
|# emerge sync
# emerge -pv ">=net-ftp/pure-ftpd-1.0.18-r1"
# emerge ">=net-ftp/pure-ftpd-1.0.18-r1"
