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.

Synopsis

The remote FTP server is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

Description

According to its banner, the remote host is running a version of TurboFTP Server earlier than 1.00.720. Such versions are reportedly affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

By sending an overly long parameter to 'DELE' FTP command, it may be possible for an authenticated FTP user to crash the affected service.

Solution

Upgrade to TurboFTP Server V1.00.720 or later.
