IBM's AIX ftp client is not vulnerable to the directory traversal attacks described in CERT Vulnerability Note VU#210409. These attacks require a connection to a malicious ftp server. The AIX ftp client specifies the files that are written to during a ftp session; it does not get this information from the server it is connected to. An attempt by a malicious server to specify a file to be written to will fail.
