Title: FileZilla: Buffer overflow (GLSA 201706-09)
A vulnerability in a bundled copy of PuTTY in FileZilla might allow
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service.
FileZilla is an open source FTP client.
Vulnerable: < 3.25.2
Unaffected: >= 3.25.2
Architectures: All supported architectures
FileZilla is affected by the same vulnerability as reported in “GLSA
201703-03” because the package included a vulnerable copy of PuTTY.
Please read the GLSA for PuTTY referenced below for details.
A remote attacker, utilizing the SSH agent forwarding of an SSH server,
could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
FileZilla or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All FileZilla users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-ftp/filezilla-3.25.2"
