ProFTPD URL cross-site request forgery
|proftpd-url-csrf (45274)||Medium Risk|
ProFTPD is vulnerable to cross-site request forgery, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input when handling certain FTP URLs. By persuading an authenticated user to click on a specially-crafted FTP URL link containing FTP commands, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to perform cross-site scripting attacks, Web cache poisoning, and other malicious activities.
Refer to ProFTPD Bugzilla Bug 3115 for patch, upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.
