WS_FTP Pro HTTP Server Response Format String

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a program that is prone to a remote
format string attack.

Description :

The remote Windows host contains a version of Ipswitch's WS_FTP
Professional that is earlier than 12.2. Such versions are prone to a
format-string vulnerability because they fail to properly sanitize
user-supplied input before passing it as the format specifier to a
formatted-printing function.

If an attacker can trick a user into connecting to a malicious web
server using the affected application, this issue could be exploited
to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.
