VERSIONS AFFECTED

 

  • FlashFXP FTP Client for Windows version 2.0 build 905

 

DESCRIPTION

 

Two buffer-overflow vulnerabilities in FlashFXP FTP Client for Windows can result in the execution of arbitrary code on the vulnerable computer. These two vulnerabilities consist of the following:
 
·         A buffer overflow occurs on the stack area if a server replies to a PASV command request with a long string. If a user connects to a malicious server, an attacker can exploit the vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system. 
 
·         A buffer overflow occurs on the stack area if a long host name is specified as destination server. If a user copies a malicious manipulated URL with the Clipboard Monitor function enabled, an attacker can exploit the vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system.
 

VENDOR RESPONSE

 
FlashFXP has released version 2.1, which doesn't contain these vulnerabilities.
