</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
An attacker that has permission to create directories that are
accessible via the FTP server could exploit this vulnerability.
Successful exploitation would execute arbitrary code on the local
machine with root privileges.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All ftpd users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-ftp/netkit-ftpd-0.17-r3&quot;</code>
</resolution>
