BlackMoon FTP Server Denial of Service

medium Nessus Plugin ID 51585
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 service is vulnerable to a denial of service attack.

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the remote FTP server is running a version of BlackMoon FTP Server earlier than 3.1.8. Such versions reportedly are affected by a denial of service vulnerability. By sending an overly long PORT command, a remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to crash the service and deny access to legitimate users.

Solution

Reports conflict as to whether this issue was fixed in 3.1.7 or 3.1.8. Upgrade to version 3.1.8 or later to be safe.
