medium Nessus Plugin ID 24020
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 denial of service vulnerability.


The remote host appears to be using Sambar Server, a multi-service application for Windows and Linux.

The version of Sambar installed on the remote host crashes when its FTP server component attempts to process a specially crafted SIZE command. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this flaw to deny service to legitimate users.


Unknown at this time.
