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 cross-site request forgery vulnerability.


The version of FTP running on the remote host is affected by a cross-site request forgery vulnerability. Long file names are not processed properly, resulting in the execution of arbitrary commands.

If a user is logged into the FTP server via web browser, a remote attacker could exploit this by tricking them into requesting a maliciously crafted web page, resulting in the execution of arbitrary FTP commands.


There is no known solution at this time.
