Core FTP Server < 1.2 Build 588 32-bit Unspecified Overflow Vulnerability

critical Nessus Plugin ID 90765
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 FTP server running on the remote host is affected by an unspecified overflow vulnerability.


The 32-bit version of Core FTP Server running on the remote host is prior to 1.2 build 588. It is, therefore, affected by an overflow condition due to a failure to properly validate user-supplied input when using FTP, FTPS, or SSL. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to impact the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of the system. No other details are provided. Note that the 64-bit version is not affected.


Upgrade to Core FTP version 1.2 build 588 (32-bit) or later.
