Serv-U < 9.4.0.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5486

Synopsis

The remote FTP server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The remote host is running Serv-U File Server, an FTP server for Windows. According to its banner, the installed version of Serv-U is earlier than 9.4.0.0, and is therefore potentially affected by the following issues :

- When importing users, restricted administrators could create user accounts outside their home directory.

- When exporting users, restricted administrators could see a user's full path for home directory, virtual paths, and directory access rules.

- A restricted domain administrator could create a user or group that was not locked in the user's home directory.

- A denial of service issue when handling a large number of concurrent HTTP requests.

Solution

Upgrade to Serv-U version 9.4.0.0 or later.
