CoreFTP contains a buffer overflow when parsing long directory names.
CoreFTP is susceptible to a buffer overflow when parsing long directory names from a malicious FTP server. The LIST, VIEW, commands are vulnerable to a denial of service and the DELE command has been reported to be vulnerable to code execution.
A user that is tricked into visiting a malicious FTP server and deleting a directory with a long name may allow arbitrary code to run on the user's computer.
