Ric Posted May 20, 2006 Report Share Posted May 20, 2006 I found this on Whitsoft Development: “SECURITY ALERT: SlimFTPd 3.15 through 3.17 have buffer overflow vulnerabilities that could potentially lead to remote code execution. Users are advised to upgrade to SlimFTPd 3.18 immediately!” 1) My question; is it safe to use the current (3.16) plug in download. Added to the security issue the new version 3.18 requires: “Attention: SlimFTPd now requires the Visual C++ 2005 runtime libraryDownload Visual C++ 2005 Runtime Redistributable Package (2.52 MB)” 2) Will you be up grading to version 3.18 if so how will this impact on portability (run time library issue). This does not cause me a problem, I do not use this plug in, however I would not like it to impact on either security or portablity of US, US is a great product because of its perceived simplicity (hides the real complexity).
