SynopsisThe remote FTP server is susceptible to a denial of service attack.
DescriptionThe installed version of PlatinumFTPserver on the remote host suffers from a denial of service vulnerability. Specifically, when a user tries to login with a username containing a backslash, '\', the application displays a dialog box and stops the login process until an administrator acknowledges a message. After several such connection attempts, the ftp server daemon reportedly crashes.
SolutionUnknown at this time.
