Novell Netware NWFTPD Username Format String Vulnerability

by Nikola Strahija on June 27th, 2002 Netware is a commercially available operating system distributed by Novell. Under some circumstances, it may be possible to remotely crash a NWFTPD server. NWFTPD reacts unpredictably when it receives format strings in the form of usernames. This could ultimately result in users of the FTP server being unable to access data stored on the server.
