[slackware-security]  proftpd (SSA:2020-051-01)

New proftpd 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/proftpd-1.3.6c-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  No CVEs assigned, but this sure looks like a security issue:
  Use-after-free vulnerability in memory pools during data transfer.
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
