New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


The remote host appears to be running Farmers WIFE, a commercial facilities, scheduling, and asset management package targeted at the media industry.

The version of Farmers WIFE installed on the remote host includes an FTP server that reportedly is vulnerable to directory traversal attacks. A user can leverage this issue to read and write to files outside the ftp root. Note that the application runs with SYSTEM privileges under Windows.


Upgrade to Farmers WIFE 4.4 SP3 or later.
