Platinum FTP server Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Platinum FTP server for Win32 has several vulnerabilities in the way it checks the format of command strings passed to it. This leads to the following vulnerabilities in the server: The 'dir' command can be used to examine the filesystem of the machine and gather further information about the host by using relative directory listings (I.E. '../../../' or '\..\..\..'). The 'delete' command can be used to delete any file on the server that the Platinum FTP server has permissions to. Issuing the command 'cd @/[email protected]/..' will cause the Platinum FTP server to crash and consume all available CPU time on the server.

Solution

Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
