Fuzzing with Metasploit : Simple FTP fuzzer

Just wanted to drop a quick note about the release of another free script. This time I’ve written a simple FTP fuzzer (with a little help from HDMoore) in Metasploit. You can read more about it (and download the script) at

This is why I like Metasploit so much… :-)

Update : after running some fuzzing instances against a couple of FTP servers (Win32), I have noticed that some odd folders were created in my ftp root folder, and that these folders cannot be renamed or removed anymore
