medium Nessus Plugin ID 49068
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 host has an application that is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


According to its banner, the remote host is running a version of Wing FTP Server earlier than 3.6.6. Such versions reportedly fail to handle certain specially crafted HTTP requests. An attacker could exploit this issue to trigger a denial of service condition, and crash the remote service.


Upgrade to Wing FTP Server 3.6.6 or later.
