wu-ftpd ABOR Privilege Escalation Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks the banner of the remote wu-ftpd server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote Wu-FTPd server seems to be vulnerable to a remote privilege

This version contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to gain
access to unauthorized rights.

Specifically, there is a flaw in the way that the server handles
an ABOR command after a data connection has been closed. The
flaw is within the dologout() function and proper exploitation
will give the remote attacker the ability to execute arbitrary
code as the 'root' user.

This flaw may lead to a loss of confidentiality and/or integrity.

*** Nessus solely relied on the banner of the remote server
*** to issue this warning, so it may be a false positive.

Solution : Upgrade to Wu-FTPd 2.4.2 or newer

Threat Level: High
