Golden FTP Server Pro GET Traversal Arbitrary File Access

medium Nessus Plugin ID 18194


The remote FTP server is affected by a directory traversal flaw.


The version of Golden FTP Server installed on the remote host is prone to a directory traversal attack. Specifically, an attacker can read files located outside a share with '\\..' sequences subject to the privileges of the FTP server process.


Use an FTP proxy to filter malicious character sequences, place the FTP root on a separate drive, or restrict access using NTFS.
