New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote FTP server is prone to a denial of service attack.


The version of Titan FTP Server installed on the remote host goes into an unstable state when it receives a 'SITE WHO' command. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can leverage this issue to deny service to legitimate users.


Upgrade to Titan FTP Server version 6.26, build 631 or later.
