    updating FTP

    I'm in the middle of updating wu-ftpd. I am running an RH6.2 box, and I finally upgraded rpm to 4.02. I've tried running:

    rpm -U wu-ftpd-2.6.1-0.6x.21.i386.rpm

    I get the message:

    error: failed dependencies:
    /etc/pam.d/system-auth is needed by wu-ftpd-2.6.1-0.6x.21

    How do I fix this? Do I need a fresh install of PAM? Or is there a way to create the system-auth file?

    i would upgrade the pam rpm or else force it.

    Thanks. I've found an updated PAM rpm. Now, if I do the upgrade, will it use my original PAM files, or will I have to recreate them. (I'll back them up, no matter what.)

    if it does try to update them you should get an pam.rc.orig (or what whatever..) i.e. it shoiuld back up custom settings itself.

    my suggestion would be to switch to proftpd.
    how many times have we seen the following headline on linux news sites: "new Wu-ftpd vulnerability gives up remote root access"
