Additional Information

Freefloat FTP is prone to an arbitrary file-upload vulnerability because it fails to adequately validate files before uploading them. Specifically, this issue affects the 'WMI' (Windows Management Instrumentation) service. An attacker can exploit this issue to execute the uploaded payload.

An attacker may leverage this issue to upload arbitrary files to the affected computer; this can result in an arbitrary code execution within the context of the vulnerable application.
