The remote FTP server is affected by a heap-based buffer overflow
The remote host is using ProFTPD, a free FTP server for Unix and
According to its banner, the version of ProFTPD installed on the
remote host is earlier than 1.3.3d. Such versions are reportedly
affected by a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability in the function
'sql_prepare_where()' in the file 'contrib/mod_sql.c'. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to exploit this in
combination with an earlier SQL injection vulnerability
(CVE-2009-0542) to execute arbitrary code with root privileges.
Note that Nessus did not actually test for the flaw but instead has
relied on the version in ProFTPD's banner.

Upgrade to ProFTPD version 1.3.3d or later.
