Updated lftp packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
LFTP is a file transfer utility for FTP, SFTP, HTTP, and other commonly used protocols. It uses the readline library for input, and provides support for bookmarks, built-in monitoring, job control, and parallel transfer of multiple files at the same time
Due to an incorrect evaluation of the length of an uploaded file, the lftp tool became unresponsive after a file transfer in ASCII mode. With this update, the volume of transferred data is recognized correctly and the lftp program no longer hangs in this scenario.
All users of lftp are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
