Description Mark Wagner 2011-05-02 19:52:16 UTC
As mentioned at and the Pure-FTPd mailing list, versions of Pure-FTPd before 1.0.32 are vulnerable to a denial-of-service attack related to glob brace expansion.  This is fixed in Pure-FTPd 1.0.32.

Reproducible: Always

CVE-2011-0418 (
  The glob implementation in Pure-FTPd before 1.0.32, and in libc in NetBSD
  5.1, does not properly expand expressions containing curly brackets, which
  allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (memory
  consumption) via a crafted FTP STAT command.
