Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:021 (krb5).


A vulnerability was discovered in the Kerberos FTP client. When the client
retrieves a file that has a filename beginning with a pipe character, the FTP
client will pass that filename to the command shell in a system() call. This
could permit a malicious remote FTP server to write to files outside of the
current directory or even execute arbitrary commands as the user using the FTP
client.
