Description

An updated gftp package is available for Red Hat Linux 6.2 and 7.1. This package contains an upgrade to gftp version 2.0.8, which improves functionality and fixes a format string vulnerability.

Previous gftp versions had a problem with format strings allowing malicious ftp servers to potentially execute code on the gftp user's system.
