Serv-U FTP could reveal the server physical path information
|servu-ftp-server-path (4060)||Low Risk|
FTP Serv-U could reveal the physical directory path of the server. When a user requests a non-existent file or directory, or changes to an existing directory, the full directory path of the server will be displayed. An attacker could use this information for a later attack.
To block directory paths from being displayed, change the message settings in the server's configuration.
To restrict the display of full directory paths (in version 2.5b):
- Start the User or Group Manager.
- Select a user or group.
- Click the Misc. button, then click the Show path relative to homedir checkbox.
- Repeat steps 1-3 for each user or group.
