3Com NBX ftpd CEL Command Remote Overflow (2)

This script is Copyright (C) 2002-2014 Michael Scheidell


Synopsis :

The remote FTP server is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.

Description :

The remote FTP server appears to be affected by a buffer overflow that
can be triggered with an overly-long 'CEL' command. This problem is
similar to the 'aix ftpd' overflow but on embedded VxWorks-based
systems like the 3Com NBX IP phone call manager and seems to cause the
server to crash. It is known to affected VxWorks ftpd versions between
5.4 and 5.4.2.

Solution :

If you are using an embedded VxWorks product, please contact the OEM
vendor and reference WindRiver field patch TSR 296292. If this is the
3Com NBX IP Phone call manager, contact 3Com.
