oftpd: Denial of Service
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-09
(oftpd: Denial of Service)
By specifying an unsupported address family in the arguments to a LPRT
or LPASV command, an assertion in oftpd will cause the daemon to abort.
Remote, unauthenticated attackers may be able to terminate any oftpd
process, denying service to legitimate users.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All oftpd users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-ftp/oftpd-0.3.7-r3"
