Platinum FTP Server

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks if the remote ftp server is a vulnerable version of Platinum FTP

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

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 @/..@/..' will cause the
Platinum FTP server to crash and consume all available CPU time on
the server.
