3Com 3CDaemon Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

by Nikola Strahija on May 2nd, 2002 3CDaemon is an FTP server developed by Dan Gill of 3Com. Reportedly, it is possible to initiate a buffer overflow on a host running 3CDaemon.

Submitting an unusually large amount of data to the ftp server, could trigger a stack-based overflow condition. This could potentially allow for malicious users to execute arbitrary code on the server. However, sending random data could cause the application to crash.
