Synopsis
========

Netkit FTP Server contains a Denial of Service vulnerability.

Background
==========

net-ftp/netkit-ftpd is the Linux Netkit FTP server with optional SSL
support.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /  Vulnerable  /                  Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-ftp/netkit-ftpd      < 0.17-r7                     >= 0.17-r7

Description
===========

Venustech AD-LAB discovered that an FTP client connected to a
vulnerable server with passive mode and SSL support can trigger an
fclose() function call on an uninitialized stream in ftpd.c.

Impact
======

A remote attacker can send specially crafted FTP data to a server with
passive mode and SSL support, causing the ftpd daemon to crash.

Workaround
==========

Disable passive mode or SSL.

Resolution
==========

All Netkit FTP Server users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-ftp/netkit-ftpd-0.17-r7"
