WFTP Unpassworded Guest Account

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 10305


The remote FTP service allows access without authentication through a guest account.


The remote FTP server accepts any user/password combination. This can allow remote attackers to access the FTP account, which can lead to information disclosure and uploads of arbitrary files on the remote host.


Upgrade to a supported version of Windows or disable the FTP server.
