The remote host is missing updates announced in advisory RHSA-2009:1278. LFTP is a sophisticated file transfer program for the FTP and HTTP protocols. Like bash, it has job control and uses the readline library for input. It has bookmarks, built-in mirroring, and can transfer several files in parallel. It is designed with reliability in mind. It was discovered that lftp did not properly escape shell metacharacters when generating shell scripts using the mirror --script command. A mirroring script generated to download files from a malicious FTP server could allow an attacker controlling the FTP server to run an arbitrary command as the user running lftp. (CVE-2007-2348) Note: This update upgrades LFTP from version 3.7.3 to upstream version 3.7.11, which incorporates a number of further bug fixes to those noted above. For details regarding these fixes, refer to the /usr/share/doc/lftp-3.7.11/NEWS file after installing this update. (BZ#308721) All LFTP users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
