|Fixed in Version||5.4|
|Summary||0003311: vsftpd doesn't correctly shut down TLS connections (FTPS)|
|Description||This is a security and an interoperability bug (see additional information links for more on both). |
It appears that all Filezilla versions newer than 188.8.131.52 won't work with vsftpd when using FTPS/FTPES because they error out because of the missing TLS shutdown. Error message: ECONNABORTED. This may apply to other clients over time (as they fix this) as well.
It seems that both, Filezilla and vsftpd developers, see this as a security issue. It was fixed in version 2.0.7 of vsftpd. So, this should get fixed/backported ASAP by upstream.
(- Shutdown the SSL data connections properly. This prevents clients such as
recent FileZilla from complaining. Reported by various people.)

|please fill a RFE upstream and cross-link back to here (5.3 beta still have the vsftpd-2.0.5-12.el5. version)|
|I thought I can only file a bug there if I'm a RedHat Network subscriber or so? No?|
|afaik, bugzilla is open to everyone to report bugs/RFE. Of course, upstream does not have to fix it and one doesn't always get solutions/support there. Neverheless the issue/RFE is at least known/public and the package maintainer is aware of the issue.|
I added a comment whatever it's worth. It would apparently need a subscriber to "ask your support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
Opened a SR with upstream to backport this officially. It should be noted that there is a patch included in the bz report.
I built some RPM's against this patch and they are available here:
|I can confirm that an FTPES connect with Filezilla to the vsftpd from these rpms works.|
Per RH, this should be fixed shortly in 4.x:
And is slated to be addressed in RHEL 5.4. No idea if there will be an interim errata release for RHEL5 however...
