Core FTP Server < 1.2 Build 508 lstrcpy Overflow Code Execution
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72661
SynopsisThe FTP server running on the remote host is affected by a code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Core FTP running on the remote host is prior to 1.2 build 508. It is, therefore, affected by buffer overflow conditions in the RegQueryValueExA() and lstrcpy() functions due to improper validation of user-supplied input when reading data from the config.dat file and/or from the Windows Registry. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or to execute arbitrary code.
SolutionUpgrade to Core FTP version 1.2 build 508 or later.
