War FTP Daemon 1.82 Denial of Service

critical Nessus Plugin ID 65188
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 FTP server is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


According to its banner, the version of War FTP Daemon installed on the remote host is 1.82. As such, it is potentially affected by a flaw in how log messages are logged to the Windows Event log. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could leverage this issue to cause a denial of service.

Note that Nessus did not actually test for the flaw but instead has relied on the version in War FTP Daemon's banner.


Upgrade to War FTP Daemon version 1.83 or later.
