rPath Security Advisory: 2008-0185-1
rPath Linux 2
Exposure Level Classification:
Remote Non-deterministic Denial of Service
rPath Issue Tracking System:
Previous versions of the vsftpd package are vulnerable to a Denial
of Service attack in which remote attackers may be able to trigger
excessive memory consumption by issuing a large number of commands.
vsftpd is not installed by default on rPath Linux 2 systems, and the
default vsftpd.conf file provided with vsftpd does not establish a
vulnerable configuration; therefore only systems customized to include
and reconfigure vsftpd may be vulnerable.
