Several security issues were fixed in atftpd.

Denis Andzakovic discovered that atftpd incorrectly handled certain
malformed packets. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted packet
to cause atftpd to crash, resulting in a denial of service.

Denis Andzakovic discovered that atftpd did not properly lock the thread
list mutex. An attacker could send a large number of tftpd packets
simultaneously when running atftpd in daemon mode to cause atftpd to
crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2019-11366)
