    Here are below the result received after scanning the web application:

    Nmap:          PORT         STATE       SERVICE              VERSION
    [*] Nmap:     21/tcp        open          ftp                Pure-FTPd

    I wonder if anyone know of a great Exploit to operate the FTP server (Pure-FTPd) found above open when scanning with Nmap?
    What Exploit can you advise me please who can help me to operate the FTP server (Pure-FTPd) open ???

    Thank you to answer me please.



    Check if there is an ‘Anonymous’ account open

    A quick search in the exploit database makes for two possibilities, see the following link:


    As always, make sure you have permission to attack the target before doing so.




    You also need to know the version (-A) of the service you want to exploit in order to know if you can exploit a vulnerability. You could compare the result of Nmap with Online/Offline Exploit Database.

    Other ways are missconfiguration. and you can figure it out with a good Vulnerability Web Scanner.

    If you want to know more in deep about how it works, you can see this documents i’m creating and posting to my Github Account. https://github.com/ksanchezcld/CISSP-CEH. i’m actually working with new version of this docs, to upload in a few days.
