[slackware-security]  proftpd (SSA:2010-357-02)

New proftpd packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0,
13.1, and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/proftpd-1.3.3d-i486-1_slack13.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes an unbounded copy operation in sql_prepare_where() that
  could be exploited to execute arbitrary code.  However, this only affects
  servers that use the sql_mod module (which Slackware does not ship), and
  in addition the ability to exploit this depends on an SQL injection bug
  that was already fixed in proftpd-1.3.2rc2 (this according to upstream).
  So in theory, this fix should only be of academic interest.
  But in practice, better safe than sorry.
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
