CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT (re-release)
----------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE: wu-ftpd
SUMMARY: Remote root compromise
DATE : 2000-06-23
AFFECTED CONECTIVA VERSIONS : servidor-1.0 3.0 4.0 4.0es 4.1 4.2 5.0

DESCRIPTION
This is a new release. Our previous -10cl didn't fix the problem.
wu-ftpd package version 2.6.0 and below has a buffer overflow that can
be remotely exploited and give an attacker root privileges on the
remote machine.

SOLUTION
All users of wu-ftpd MUST upgrade immediately. The updated packages
contain a patch to fix this vulnerability.
Users of "Conectiva Linux 3.0" can use the packages supplied for "servidor-1.0".
Please note that the -10cl packages released earlier today didn't correct this
problem.
