Title: gFTP: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200711-01)
Date: November 01, 2007
Two buffer overflow vulnerabilities have been discovered in fsplib code used in gFTP.
gFTP is an FTP client for the GNOME desktop environment.
Vulnerable: < 2.0.18-r6
Unaffected: >= 2.0.18-r6
Architectures: All supported architectures
Kalle Olavi Niemitalo discovered two boundary errors in fsplib code included in gFTP when processing overly long directory or file names.
A remote attacker could trigger these vulnerabilities by enticing a user to download a file with a specially crafted directory or file name, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code (CVE-2007-3962) or a Denial of Service (CVE-2007-3961).
There is no known workaround at this time.
All gFTP users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-ftp/gftp-2.0.18-r6"
