ProFTPd ASCII Newline Character Overflow



The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.


The remote host is running a version of ProFTPd which seems to be vulnerable to a buffer overflow when a user downloads a malformed ASCII file. An attacker with upload privileges on this host may abuse this flaw to gain a root shell on this host.


Upgrade to ProFTPd 1.2.9 or 1.2.8p or higher.
