SmartFTP overly long directory name PWD command response buffer overflow
|smartftp-pwd-directory-bo (12228)||High Risk|
SmartFTP is vulnerable to a buffer overflow. By sending an overly long directory name (over 0x208 bytes) in a reply to a PWD command issued by a SmartFTP client, a remote attacker in control of a malicious FTP server could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on a victim's system with privileges of the SmartFTP process.
Upgrade to the latest version of SmartFTP (1.0.976 or later), available from the SmartFTP Web site. See References.
