Vulnerability Assessment Details

ftp writeable directories

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
checks if the remote FTP server has any world writeable dirs

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
It is usually a bad idea to have world writeable
directories in a public FTP server, since it may
permit anyone to use the FTP server as a 'warez'
server (this means that the FTP server will be
used to exchange non-free software between
software pirates). It may also permit anyone to
make a denial of service by filling up the FTP
server filesystem
