New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.7
SynopsisIt is possible for anonymous users to copy arbitrary files.
DescriptionThe remote host is running ProFTPD. It is affected by a vulnerability in the mod_copy module which fails to honor <Limit READ> and <Limit WRITE> configurations as expected. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by using the mod_copy module's functionality, in order to copy arbitrary files in the FTP directory, provided that anonymous logins and mod_copy are enabled and the FTP directory is accessible from a web server. If a file exists in the FTP directory that contains PHP code but does not use the PHP extension, an attacker can copy this file to one with a PHP extension in order to execute code.
SolutionUpgrade to the latest version of ProFTPD.
