ftp writeable directories Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
checks if the remote FTP server has any world writeable dirs
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

directories in a public FTP server, since it may
allow 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 allow anyone to
make a denial of service by filling up the FTP
