IPSwitch WS_FTP Server FTP Bounce Vulnerability

by Nikola Strahija on October 28th, 2002 Ipswitch WS_FTP Server is a FTP server for Microsoft Windows platforms. WS_FTP Server is vulnerable to a FTP bounce attack when a user submits a specially crafted FTP command.

It is possible for a user accessing a vulnerable FTP server to send data to other systems. By using the PORT command to specify a different host and port from the host that is the origin of the connection, it is possible for a user to send data to the specified host that may be malicious. This could result in the proxying of arbitrary requests by a user through the system using the vulnerable software.

Vulnerability is remote and there is no exploit code yet.
