-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 [slackware-security] proftpd (SSA:2010-357-02) New proftpd packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, and -current to fix security issues. Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog: +--------------------------+ patches/packages/proftpd-1.3.3d-i486-1_slack13.1.txz: Upgraded. This update fixes an unbounded copy operation in sql_prepare_where() that could be exploited to execute arbitrary code. However, this only affects servers that use the sql_mod module (which Slackware does not ship), and in addition the ability to exploit this depends on an SQL injection bug that was already fixed in proftpd-1.3.2rc2 (this according to upstream). So in theory, this fix should only be of academic interest. But in practice, better safe than sorry. (* Security fix *) +--------------------------+ Where to find the new packages: +-----------------------------+ HINT: Getting slow download speeds from Give a try. This is another primary FTP site for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading directly from Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab ( for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting to the Slackware project! :-) Also see the "Get Slack" section on for additional mirror sites near you.
