Bug Fix Advisory vsftpd bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0537-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-04-30
Last updated on: 2012-04-30
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Details

Updated vsftpd packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

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

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the vsftpd daemon did not correctly handle a situation when it
received the EADDRINUSE error from a TCP port which vsftpd was listening on. In
such a case, vsftpd immediately sent an error message to an FTP client instead
of retrying to use the port. This update modifies error handling of vsftpd so
that the daemon now retries to use the port before sending the error message to
the FTP client in this scenario. (BZ#813567)

All users of vsftpd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.


Solution

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