A flaw in the FTP client installed on the remote host could allow a
rogue FTP server to write to arbitrary locations on the remote host.
The remote host contains a version of the Microsoft FTP client that
contains a flaw in the way it handles FTP download. An attacker could
exploit this flaw to modify the destination location for files
downloaded via FTP.
To exploit this flaw an attacker would need to set up a rogue FTP server
and have a victim on the remote host connect to it and download a file
manually using the affected client.
