Name        : proftpd
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 1.3.4
Release     : 0.8.rc2.fc15
URL         : http://www.proftpd.org/
Summary     : Flexible, stable and highly-configurable FTP server
Description :
ProFTPD is an enhanced FTP server with a focus toward simplicity, security,
and ease of configuration. It features a very Apache-like configuration
syntax, and a highly customizable server infrastructure, including support for
multiple 'virtual' FTP servers, anonymous FTP, and permission-based directory

This package defaults to the standalone behavior of ProFTPD, but all the
needed scripts to have it run by xinetd instead are included.

Update Information:

The second release candidate for proftpd 1.3.4.

This includes fixes for a number of security issues:

* Plaintext command injection vulnerability in FTPS implementation
* Badly formed SSH messages cause DoS
* Limit recursion depth for untrusted regular expressions (#673040)

The update also contains a large number of bug fixes over release candidate 1, plus new support for SSL session caching using memcached.
