The remote FTP server is vulnerable to several flaws.
Platinum FTP server for Win32 has several vulnerabilities in the way it
checks the format of command strings passed to it.
This leads to the following vulnerabilities in the server :
- The 'dir' command can be used to examine the filesystem of the machine
and gather further information about the host by using relative
(i.e. '../../../' or '\..\..\..').
- The 'delete' command can be used to delete any file on the server that
the Platinum FTP server has permissions to.
- Issuing the command 'cd @/..@/..' will cause the Platinum FTP server
to crash and consume all available CPU time on the server.
