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


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.
