This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FTP server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The installed version of Serv-U is earlier than 8.0.0.1 and thus
is reportedly affected by the following issues :

- A directory traversal vulnerability enables an
authenticated, remote attacker to create directories
outside his or her home directory. (CVE-2009-1031)

- An authenticated, remote attacker can cause the FTP
service to become saturated for a long period of time
using a long series of 'SMNT' commands without an
argument. During this time, new connections would
not be allowed. (CVE-2009-0967)
