Updated proftpd packages fix security vulnerabilityPublication date: 24 Apr 2017
Affected Mageia releases : 5
ProFTPD before 1.3.5e controls whether the home directory of a user could contain a symbolic link through the AllowChrootSymlinks configuration option, but checks only the last path component when enforcing AllowChrootSymlinks. Attackers with local access could bypass the AllowChrootSymlinks control by replacing a path component (other than the last one) with a symbolic link. The threat model includes an attacker who is not granted full filesystem access by a hosting provider, but can reconfigure the home directory of an FTP user (CVE-2017-7418).
