Description

An updated gFTP package that fixes a directory traversal issue is now available. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

gFTP is a multi-threaded FTP client for the X Window System. A directory traversal bug was found in gFTP. If a user can be tricked into downloading a file from a malicious ftp server, it is possible to overwrite arbitrary files owned by the victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0372 to this issue. Users of gftp should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported fix for this issue.
