Thanks, I checked on security.debian.org but couldn't find anything -
so probably a sign not to worry too much. |

Here's the bug report on this for Debian: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=212416 According to the bug report, woody is not vulnerable. ISS says that versions 1.2.7 through 1.2.9rc2 (and possibly versions prior to 1.2.7) are vulnerable. I suspect that someone somewhere has since tested ealier versions (woody runs a patched 1.2.4) and decided that those versions are not vulnerable. It would be nice if the bug report noted on what evidence stable is not affected.All I could think of for the moment was disabling donwloading via FTP globally. Any ideas?Yes it sounds like denying either uploads or downloads would have saved you.
