<p>
Kalle Olavi Niemitalo discovered two boundary errors in fsplib code
included in gFTP when processing overly long directory or file names.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could trigger these vulnerabilities by enticing a
user to download a file with a specially crafted directory or file
name, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code
(CVE-2007-3962) or a Denial of Service (CVE-2007-3961).
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All gFTP users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-ftp/gftp-2.0.18-r6&quot;</code>
</resolution>
