FTP servers such as OpenBSD ftpd, NetBSD ftpd, ProFTPd and Opieftpd do not properly cleanse untrusted format strings that are used in the setproctitle function (sometimes called by set_proc_title), which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary commands.

 Christey> CD:SF-CODEBASE applies here.  There are many ftpd's that
   have this setproctitle() problem, but it might be traced
   back to the same codebase.  See if the HP problem is the
   same here as well, and if so, ADDREF HP:HPSBUX0007-117

   BID:1438 does not exist.
