Subject: CVE request: lftp saves unknown host's fingerprint in known_hosts
 without any prompt


I did not see a CVE request for this yet - so here we go:

While connecting to an unknown host, lftp silently accepts it's
fingerprint and adds it to the known_hosts file.
This makes MitM attack possible.

Upstream report...
...and the fix:


Can a CVE be assigned to this please?
