The FTP server running on the remote host is affected by multiple
The version of Core FTP running on the remote host is prior to 1.2
build 515. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A denial of service vulnerability exists that is
triggered when handling malformed data after the 'AUTH
SSL' command. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this to cause an assertion failure, resulting in
a server crash. (CVE-2014-1441)
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to a
failure to properly sanitize user-supplied input. An
authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via
directory traversal using the 'XCRC' command, to gain
access to arbitrary files. (CVE-2014-1442)
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to
improper handling of crafted string data by the 'USER'
command. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this, via a specially crafted string, to access the
password for the user that previously logged on.
