FTP Attack - Successful SITE EXEC Command

High

Synopsis

An FTP user issued a successful SITE EXEC command.

Description

An FTP user issued a successful SITE EXEC command. The SITE EXEC command is often attempted by remote hackers to run UNIX and Windows commands directly on the FTP server. This PVS rule detects a successful command execution, not an attempt.

Solution

Disable the FTP service or restrict access to it.
