[slackware-security]  lftp (SSA:2018-214-01)

New lftp packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current to
fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/lftp-4.8.4-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  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.
  For more information, see:
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
( for donating FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on for
additional mirror sites near you.
