Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote Wu-FTPd server seems to be vulnerable to a remote flaw.

This version contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to overwrite
arbitrary files. The issue is triggered when a possible hacker sends a specially
formatted rnfr command. This flaw will allow a remote attacker to overwrite
any file on the system.

*** 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
