A remotely exploitable buffer overflow exists in the IPSWITCH WS_FTP Server.
Defcom Labs has discovered a remotely exploitable buffer overflow vulnerability in the IPSWITCH WS_FTP Server (on all platforms) that allows intruders to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process running the ftp server, typically SYSTEM. This buffer overflow exists in all versions of WS_FTP Server prior to 2.04. The buffer overflow occurs in the section of code that handles stat command parsing.
Remote intruders can execute arbitrary code on the target host with SYSTEM privileges.
