WS_FTP SITE CPWD Buffer Overflow

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks FTP server banner for vulnerable version of WS_FTP Server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

This host is running a version of WS_FTP FTP server prior to 3.1.2.
Versions earlier than 3.1.2 contain an unchecked buffer in routines that
handle the 'CPWD' command arguments. The 'CPWD' command permits remote
users to change their password. By issuing a malformed argument to the
CPWD command, a user could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code
on this host. Note that a local user account is required.

The vendor has released a patch that fixes this issue. Please install
the latest patch available from the vendor's website at
