EFTP tells if a given file exists

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
EFTP directory traversal

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote FTP server can be used to acertain if a given
file exists on the remote host or not, by adding dot-dot-slashes
in front of them.

For instance, it is possible to acertain the existence
of \autoexec.bat by using the command SIZE or MDTM on
../../../../autoexec.bat

A possible hacker may use this flaw to gain more knowledge about
this host, such as its file layout. This flaw is specially
useful when used with other vulnerabilities.

Solution : update your EFTP server to 2.0.8.348 or change it
