this is no news
excuse my rant,
but wu-ftp vulnerabilities start to become like
statements that windows is bad...
i have stopped using wu-ftp years ago, it was bad back then,
and it did not get any better
it's worse than sendmail.
i havn't heared about that for a while...
so they seem to have made some progress,
but wu-ftp aparently has not,
however, i don't care anymore, just like most of us don't care about windows
(the difference is, that wu-ftp can be replaced in 100% of the cases,
while windows can not (yet))
