There was a vulnerability released today in wu ftpd and I'm unclear if
this would affect the software running on a freebsd system. It appears
to cause problems on linux 2.4.x kernels but not older kernels due to
the way the compiler works. Does anyone know if this problem is
exploitable on freebsd? If not, where should I ask this question?
Here's the header included in the advisory with links.
