Core FTP Filename Processing Boundary Error FTP List Command Response Parsing Remote Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

An FTP client on the remote host is affected by a buffer overflow
vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Core FTP installed on the remote host is less than 2.2
build 1745. It thus is reportedly affected by a buffer overflow
vulnerability that can be triggered when it receives a specially
crafted FTP LIST command response.

By tricking a user into connecting to a malicious server, a remote
attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on the affected host,
subject to the user's privileges.
