medium Nessus Plugin ID 48214
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 issue.

Description

According to its banner, the remote host is running a version of Wing FTP Server earlier than 3.2.0. Such versions are reportedly affected by a denial of service vulnerability. By sending a specially crafted 'PORT' command with an invalid parameter, it may be possible for an attacker to crash the service.

Solution

Upgrade to Wing FTP Server 3.2.0 or later.
