Subject: tnftp 20141031 released to resolve CVE-2014-8517.


Alistair Crooks (NetBSD Security Office) suggested that I notify this list.

I've released an update of tnftp which contains NetBSD's fix
to the recent CVS-2014-8517.

tnftp is the portable version of NetBSD's ftp, and various
distros use it.

The release may be found at:
