TurboFTP 'DELE' FTP Command Remote Buffer Overflow

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5300


The remote FTP server is vulnerable to a remote denial of service attack.


The remote host is running the TurboFTP FTP server. The installed version of TurboFTP is earlier than 1.00.720. Such versions are potentially affected by a remote buffer overflow vulnerability when handling an overly large string that is passed to the 'DELE' FTP command. An attacker, exploiting this flaw, could crash the affected service.
