Synopsis :

It is possible to disclose the contents of the memory of the remote
host

Description :

The remote FTP server seems to be vulnerable to an integer conversion
bug when it receives a malformed argument to the 'REST' command.

An attacker may exploit this flaw to force the remote FTP daemon to
disclose portions of the memory of the remote host.

Solution :

If the remote FTP server is HP-UX ftpd, then apply patch PHNE_21936.
