Synopsis :

The remote FTP server is affected by multiple issues.

Description :

The remote FTP server discloses the full path to its root through a
CWD command for a nonexistent directory.

In addition, the server may be prone to a buffer overflow that may
allow a remote, authenticated attacker to launch a denial of service
attack against the affected software.
