A security hole was discovered in the package mentioned above.
Please update it as soon as possible or disable the service if you are using
this software on your SuSE Linux installation(s).

Other Linux distributions or operating systems might be affected as
well, please contact your vendor for information about this issue.

Please note that we provide this information on an "as-is" basis only.

_____________________________________________________________________________

1. Problem Description

  The wu-ftp FTP server does not do proper bounds checking while processing
  the SITE EXEC command.

2. Impact

  An remote attacker could execute arbitrary machine code as root on a FTP
  server using wu-ftpd.

  This bug could only be exploited if anonymous access to the FTP server
  is allowed.

3. Solution

  We recommend using our audited 2.4er version of wu-ftpd.

  Update the package from our FTP server.
______________________________________________________________________________

Please verify these md5 checksums of the updates before installing:
(For SuSE 6.0, please use the 6.1 updates)
