Cerberus FTP Server Command Processing DoS

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The FTP server installed on the remote Windows host has a denial of
service vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Cerberus FTP server on the remote host has a denial of
service vulnerability. Sending a very long argument (1400 bytes or
more) to any command causes the server to crash. This reportedly does
not result in memory corruption - the vulnerable versions abnormally
terminate when a long argument is received (before any data is
successfully copied into the destination buffer). A remote attacker
could exploit this issue to cause a denial of service.
