FreeBSD : FreeBSD -- Remote command execution in ftp(1) (7488378d-6007-11e6-a6c3-14dae9d210b8)

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

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

A malicious HTTP server could cause ftp(1) to execute arbitrary
commands. Impact : When operating on HTTP URIs, the ftp(1) client
follows HTTP redirects, and uses the part of the path after the last
'/' from the last resource it accesses as the output filename if '-o'
is not specified.

If the output file name provided by the server begins with a pipe
('|'), the output is passed to popen(3), which might be used to
execute arbitrary commands on the ftp(1) client machine.
