Subject: [PEN-TEST] ftp etc/passwd

I'm doing a pen-test on a Solaris/NT network and I found a
Solaris server
with anonymous ftp on and with what appears to be the root
directory of a
user on the system.

Anon ftp normally runs chroot so you are probably only seeing
bogus system files. Check the size of passwd, it should only
be around 20 bytes or so, just a line for the anon ftp user.
The group file should only contain the ftp group as well.
