The version should be OK. How to proceed now?
There were alltogether 5
wu-ftpd[.*]: exiting on signal 11: Segmentation fault
which occured in a time of 45 minutes. All connections while this
time were established from ith2-d69.twcny.rr.com .
Could it be a potentionally exploit or a bug in wu-ftpd. I do logcheck
observations since one month and never detected such things before.
