BlackMoon FTP Server Denial of Service
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 51585
SynopsisThe remote FTP service is vulnerable to a denial of service attack.
DescriptionAccording 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.
SolutionReports 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.
