Anonymous FTP Enabled

This script is Copyright (C) 1999-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

Anonymous logins are allowed on the remote FTP server.

Description :

Nessus has detected that the FTP server running on the remote host
allows anonymous logins. Therefore, any remote user may connect and
authenticate to the server without providing a password or unique
credentials. This allows the user to access any files made available
by the FTP server.

Solution :

Disable anonymous FTP if it is not required. Routinely check the FTP
server to ensure that sensitive content is not being made available.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
