Serv-U < 14.0.2.0 FTP Server SSL Renegotiation DoS

medium Nessus Plugin ID 69060
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 server is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

Description

According to its banner, the installed version of Serv-U is earlier than 14.0.2.0 and is, therefore, potentially affected by a denial of service vulnerability. A remote attacker could cause denial of service conditions by continually sending SSL renegotiation requests to the application.

Solution

Upgrade to Serv-U version 14.0.2.0 or later.
