Total Commander FTP Client Traversal Arbitrary File Overwrite

High Nessus Plugin ID 40927


The remote host contains an application that is affected by an arbitrary file overwrite issue.


The version of Total Commander installed on the remote host fails to sanitize filenames of directory traversal sequences when downloading files via FTP.

If an attacker can trick a user on the affected system into visiting a malicious FTP server, he can leverage this issue to write to arbitrary files, subject to his privileges.


Upgrade to Total Commander 7.02 or later.
