Update: Red Hat, Debian wu-ftpd package

Both Red Hat and Debian have released updated packages which address two security issues identified in the public wu-ftpd daemon.

According to the Red Hat, the flaw discovered in wu-ftpd could be used by an authorised user to bypass directory restrictions.

Another flaw was also detected in the S/Key login handling. This could allow a remote attacker could overflow a buffer andpotentially execute arbitrary code.

More information on the updated package is available from: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2004-096.html and
