Debian: New lftp packages fix arbitrary code execution

Ulf Harnhammar discovered a buffer overflow in lftp, a set of sophisticated command-line FTP/HTTP client programs. An attacker could create a carefully crafted directory on a website so that the execution of an 'ls' or 'rels' command would lead to the execution of arbitrary code on the client machine. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.
