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: 7.4
SynopsisThe remote ProFTP daemon is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote ProFTP daemon is susceptible to an overflow condition. The TELNET_IAC escape sequence handling fails to properly sanitize user- supplied input resulting in a stack overflow. With a specially crafted request, an unauthenticated, remote attacker could potentially execute arbitrary code.
