Ability FTP Server Multiple Command Remote Buffer Overflows

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FTP server is vulnerable to multiple remote buffer
overflow attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running Ability FTP Server. It is reported
that the remote version of this software is prone to a remote buffer
overflow attack via the 'STOR' and 'APPE' commands. An attacker,
exploiting this flaw, would only need to be able to craft and send a
query to the FTP server on its service port (usually 21).
