GoodTech FTP Server Connection Saturation DoS
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 10690
SynopsisThe remote ftp server is prone to denial of service attacks.
DescriptionThe remote host appears to be running GoodTech FTP Server for Windows.
It was possible to disable the remote FTP server by connecting to it about 3000 separate times. If the remote server is running from within [x]inetd, this is a feature and the FTP server should automatically be back in a couple of minutes. An attacker may use this flaw to prevent this service from working properly.
SolutionUpgrade to a version of GoodTech FTP server later than 126.96.36.199.1.0.
