War FTP Daemon 1.82 Denial of Service

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FTP server is affected by a denial of service
vulnerability.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of War FTP Daemon installed on the
remote host is 1.82. As such, it is potentially affected by a flaw in
how log messages are logged to the Windows Event log. A remote,
unauthenticated attacker could leverage this issue to cause a denial of
service.

Note that Nessus did not actually test for the flaw but instead has
relied on the version in War FTP Daemon's banner.
