Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-01-31 09:10:01 UTC
From ${URL} :

An FTP command injection flaw was found [1] in Erlang's FTP module. Several functions in the FTP module do 
not properly sanitize the input before passing it into a control socket. A local attacker can use this 
flaw to execute arbitrary FTP commands on a system that uses this module.

This issue has been reported upstream [2], but has not yet been fixed.


@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

We can stabilize erlang-17.3 for this, which has the fix.

Stable on alpha.
Comment 8 Dirkjan Ochtman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-04-13 16:55:38 UTC
Security team, ping? I think this can be closed, we've long since stabilized 17.5.
Comment 9 Aaron Bauman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-07-02 05:06:15 UTC
Looking at the CVE and mailing lists I cannot confirm the versioning.  Hopefully you can provide expertise on the R15B03 reference to which this was tested?  Basically, is vulnerable?
Comment 10 Dirkjan Ochtman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-07-03 10:47:02 UTC
I'm all for removing it. Amadeusz, how are we doing on ejabberd stuff?
Comment 11 Dirkjan Ochtman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-07-03 10:48:39 UTC
That is, I agree that is probably vulnerable, although I can't find any definitive information on it, either.

I'm about to request stabilization for amd64, arm, ppc, x86, but I've just got keywords for ~ia64 and soon I may have it for ~sparc which means we will have to wait a bit for stabilization, unless... there's a way around this.
Comment 13 Dirkjan Ochtman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-08-21 07:08:14 UTC
Removed the final vulnerable version from the tree.
