FireFTP add-on for FireFox MLSD and LIST commands directory traversal
|fireftp-mlsd-list-directory-traversal (42516)||Medium Risk|
FireFTP could allow a remote attacker to traverse directories on the system. By persuading a victim to download a directory containing a file with "dot dot" (\..\) sequences in filename via the MLSD or LIST command, an attacker could traverse directories and write arbitrary files to the system.
