|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: oftpd: Denial of Service (GLSA 200701-09)
Date: January 15, 2007
An assertion in oftpd could lead to a denial of service vulnerability.
oftpd is a small, anonymous only ftp daemon.
Vulnerable: < 0.3.7-r3
Unaffected: >= 0.3.7-r3
Architectures: All supported architectures
By specifying an unsupported address family in the arguments to a LPRT or LPASV command, an assertion in oftpd will cause the daemon to abort.
Remote, unauthenticated attackers may be able to terminate any oftpd process, denying service to legitimate users.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All oftpd users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-ftp/oftpd-0.3.7-r3"
