Date Reported:

Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 929020.
More information:

The update of proftpd-dfsg issued as DLA-1753-1 caused a regression when the creation of a directory failed during sftp transfer. The sftp session would be terminated instead of failing gracefully due to a non-existing debug logging function.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.5e+r1.3.5-2+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your proftpd-dfsg packages.
