The following problems have been reported for the version of proftpd in Debian 2.2 (potato): 1. There is a memory leak in the SIZE command which can result in a denial of service, as reported by Wojciech Purczynski. This is only a problem if proftpd cannot write to its scoreboard file the default configuration of proftpd in Debian is not vulnerable. 2. A similar memory leak affects the USER command, also as reported by Wojciech Purczynski. The proftpd in Debian 2.2 is susceptible to this vulnerability an attacker can cause the proftpd daemon to crash by exhausting its available memory. 3. There were some format string vulnerabilities reported by Przemyslaw Frasunek. These are not known to have exploits, but have been corrected as a precaution.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
