   SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for vsftpd

Announcement ID:    SUSE-RU-2018:2191-1
Rating:             moderate
References:         #1010177 #1075060 #1093179 #975538 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12-SP3

   An update that has four recommended fixes can now be


   This update for vsftpd fixes the following issues:

   - No longer start/stop parameterized systemd units, which led to a
     confusing "failed to try-restart" error. (bsc#1093179, bsc#1010177)
   - Disable the default setting for rsa_cert_file. The upstream
     configuration initializes that value to
     "/usr/share/ssl/certs/vsftpd.pem" and vsftpd won't start up if that file
     does not exist (or if it does not contain a RSA certificate). Therefore,
     users who copy a DSA certificate to that location or properly configure
     a DSA certificate via dsa_cert_file without explicitly disabling the RSA
     certificate won't be able to start vsftpd. (bsc#975538)
   - Mention the new 'address_space_limit' option in the installed
     vsftpd.conf manpage. (bsc#1075060)
