Announcement ID: SUSE-RU-2018:2244-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1010177 #1075060 #1093179 #975538
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Server Applications 15

  • An update that has four recommended fixes can now be installed.


    This update for vsftpd fixes the following issues:

    - Add 'rsa_cert_file' and 'dsa_cert_file' options to config file template
    to make the user aware that either one of those options need to be
    configured, otherwise vsftpd won't start up if SSL mode is enabled
    - Bugfix: Don't start/stop parameterized systemd units in pre/post
    actions. These units cannot be used without an explicit parameter and
    attempts to do so lead to a confusing "failed to try-restart" error
    message. (bsc#1093179, bsc#1010177)
    - man page: Added description for 'address_space_limit' option
