BlackMoon FTP Server static buffer overflow

blackmoon-ftpd-static-bo (7895) The risk level is classified as HighHigh Risk

By sending an overly long (USER, PASS, or CWD) command to the server, a remote attacker can overflow a buffer and cause the FTP daemon to crash or execute arbitrary code on the server with Local System privileges.
