Wing FTP Server LDAP Authentication Bypass

medium Nessus Plugin ID 54956
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 an authentication bypass attack.

Description

The remote FTP server is running a version of Wing FTP Server earlier than 3.8.7. As such, it reportedly is affected by an authentication bypass vulnerability when LDAP or Active Directory authentication is used.

An attacker can exploit this issue by logging into the FTP server with an empty password. Successfully exploiting this issue requires that the LDAP server allows anonymous binds as well as knowledge of a valid account.

Solution

Upgrade to version 3.8.7 or later.
