Multiple FTP server ".lnk" directory traversal
|ftp-lnk-directory-traversal (6760)||Low Risk|
ArGoSoft FTP Server, Transsoft Broker FTP Server, and WFTPD could allow a remote attacker to traverse directories on the Web server. A remote attacker can upload a '.lnk' file which points to any file or directory to traverse directories and gain access to any file in the directory containing the link.
For WFTPD (all versions):
Upgrade to WFTPD (3.10 R1 or later) or (Pro 3.10 R1 or later), available from Texas Imperial Softwares Web site. See References.
