FileZilla Server < 0.9.44 OpenSSL Heartbeat Information Disclosure (Heartbleed)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 73640
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 an information disclosure vulnerability.


According to its banner, the version of FileZilla Server running on the remote host is prior to 0.9.44. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

An information disclosure flaw exists with the OpenSSL included with FileZilla Server. A remote attacker could read the contents of up to 64KB of server memory, potentially exposing passwords, private keys, and other sensitive data.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to FileZilla Server version 0.9.44 or later.
