Slackware-14.2 ChangeLog (2018-08-02)

Upgraded

  • patches/packages/lftp-4.8.4-i586-1_slack14.2.txz
    It has been discovered that lftp up to and including version 4.8.3 does
    not properly sanitize remote file names, leading to a loss of integrity
    on the local system when reverse mirroring is used. A remote attacker
    may trick a user to use reverse mirroring on an attacker controlled FTP
    server, resulting in the removal of all files in the current working
    directory of the victim's system.

    (* Security fix *)
