#7328 closed Bug report (fixed)

Filezilla server allows access to directorys above the defined shared dir

I noticed a severe security leak this morning. When you define shared folders for a user eg.:

  • W:\MyFTP\jan

and add another shared folder e.a.

  • W:\MyHomePage\Blog\jan\wp-content\uploads

Then filezilla server gives "jan access to:

  • W:\MyFTP\jan and

W:\MyHomePage\Blog\jan (ignoring the rest of the path)

Very sevire IMHO

Sorry, the bug does not exist. I was (and still are) confused about the server site directorys as shown in the client.

They dot not appear the way I would expect:


So I mixed up the FTP root dir and the extra share because im my case they have the same structure.
