Announcement ID: openSUSE-RU-2017:2603-1
Rating: moderate

Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 42.3

An update that has four recommended fixes can now be


This update for vsftpd provides the following fixes:

- Fix a bug in vsftpd that would cause SSL protocol errors, aborting the
connection, whenever system errors occurred that were supposed to be
non-fatal. (bsc#1044292)
- Fix a seccomp failure that happens in FIPS mode when SSL is enabled.
- Allow the FTP server to append to a file system pipe. (bsc#1048427)
- Create a new configuration option "address_space_limit", which
determines the memory limit vsftpd configures for its own process (given
in bytes). The previously hard-coded limit (100 MB) may not be
sufficient for vsftpd servers running with certain PAM modules enabled,
and in such cases administrators may wish to raise the limit to match
their system's requirements. (bsc#1042137)
