Advisory: RHBA-2012:0001-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-01-03
Last updated on: 2012-01-03
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)

Details

An updated vsftpd package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The vsftpd package includes a Very Secure FTP (File Transfer Protocol) daemon.

This update fixes the following bug:

* The vsftpd daemon sets a value of the RLIMIT_AS variable during its
initialization phase. With Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1, the RLIMIT_AS value
(100 MB) became insufficient which restricted LDAP users from authentication to
the system using vsftpd. With this update, the initial RLIMIT_AS value has been
increased to 200 MB, and vsftpd now can be used for LDAP authentication as
expected. (BZ#767108)

All users of vsftpd are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
