[slackware-security] vsftpd (SSA:2012-041-05)

New vsftpd packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0,
13.1, 13.37, and -current to work around a vulnerability in glibc.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/vsftpd-2.3.5-i486-1_slack13.37.txz: Upgraded.
Minor version bump, this also works around a hard to trigger heap overflow
in glibc (glibc zoneinfo caching vuln). For there to be any possibility
to trigger the glibc bug within vsftpd, the non-default option
"chroot_local_user" must be set in /etc/vsftpd.conf.
Considered 1) low severity (hard to exploit) and 2) not a vsftpd bug :-)
Nevertheless:
(* Security fix *)
