A hacker has posted code on his Milw0rm website that could be used to attack a system running Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) server and install unauthorized software on it. The good news is that the attack appears to work only on older versions of IIS—versions 7.x are not affected. The flaw resides in the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) software used by IIS to transfer large files, meaning that FTP must be enabled for an attack to be succesful. The risk posed by this vulnerability isn't completely clear yet, but Microsoft says it is looking into the issue."Microsoft is investigating new public claims of a possible vulnerability in IIS 5 and IIS 6 File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and are currently unaware of any attacks trying to use the claimed vulnerability or of customer impact," a Microsoft spokesperson told Ars. The software giant will take steps to determine how customers can protect themselves if the vulnerability is confirmed and will take whatever action it determines is appropriate to protect customers once the investigation is complete.
