BrowseFTP Buffer Overflow

by Nikola Strahija on January 8th, 2002 It has been reported that a malicious ftp server can execute arbitrary code on a BrowseFTP client user. If a server's 220 line is of excessive length, a stack based overflow will occur, leaving malicious administrators privileges to run arbitrary code on client hosts.

A patch or workaround is not yet available. If you are aware of one, contact us on staff [at]
