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 FTP server running on the remote host is affected by a code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Core FTP running on the remote host is prior to 1.2 build 508. It is, therefore, affected by buffer overflow conditions in the RegQueryValueExA() and lstrcpy() functions due to improper validation of user-supplied input when reading data from the config.dat file and/or from the Windows Registry. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or to execute arbitrary code.
SolutionUpgrade to Core FTP version 1.2 build 508 or later.
