Ability FTP Server Multiple Command Remote Buffer Overflows

critical Nessus Plugin ID 15628


The remote FTP server is vulnerable to multiple remote buffer overflow attacks.


The remote host is running Ability FTP Server. It is reported that the remote version of this software is prone to a remote buffer overflow attack via the 'STOR' and 'APPE' commands. An attacker, exploiting this flaw, would only need to be able to craft and send a query to the FTP server on its service port (usually 21).


Upgrade to Ability FTP Server version 2.35 or newer.
