Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2011-15740
2011-11-11 00:54:06
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : proftpd
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 1.3.4
Release     : 1.fc15
URL         : http://www.proftpd.org/
Summary     : Flexible, stable and highly-configurable FTP server
Description :
ProFTPD is an enhanced FTP server with a focus toward simplicity, security,
and ease of configuration. It features a very Apache-like configuration
syntax, and a highly customizable server infrastructure, including support
for
multiple 'virtual' FTP servers, anonymous FTP, and permission-based
directory
visibility.

This package defaults to the standalone behavior of ProFTPD, but all the
needed scripts to have it run by xinetd instead are included.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update, to the current upstream stable release, includes a pair of
security fixes:

* Enable OpenSSL countermeasure against SSLv3/TLSv1 BEAST attacks (upstream
bug 3704); to disable this countermeasure, which may cause interoperability
issues with some clients, use the NoEmptyFragments TLSOption
* Response pool use-after-free memory corruption error (upstream bug 3711,
#752812, ZDI-CAN-1420, CVE-2011-4130), in which a remote attacker could
provide a specially-crafted request (resulting in a need for the server to
handle an exceptional condition), leading to memory corruption and
potentially arbitrary code execution, with the privileges of the user
running the proftpd server

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
