New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote FTP service is vulnerable to an authentication bypass attack.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the remote FTP server is running a version of GridFTP Server earlier than 3.42 / 6.11. Such versions reportedly are affected by an authentication bypass vulnerability caused by incorrect use of 'getpwnam_r()'. When a 'gridmap' file is improperly configured with a valid user DN mapped to a nonexistent user account, the GridFTP server may grant access to the client under another account.
SolutionUpgrade to version 3.42 / 6.11 or later.
