					This module exploits a stack-based buffer overflow in versions 1.2 through
				1.3.0 of ProFTPD server. The vulnerability is within the "sreplace" function
				within the "src/support.c" file.

				The off-by-one heap overflow bug in the ProFTPD sreplace function has been
				discovered about 2 (two) years ago by Evgeny Legerov. We tried to exploit
				this off-by-one bug via MKD command, but failed. We did not work on this bug
				since then.

				Actually, there are exists at least two bugs in sreplace function, one is the
				mentioned off-by-one heap overflow bug the other is a stack-based buffer overflow
				via 'sstrncpy(dst,src,negative argument)'.

				We were unable to reach the "sreplace" stack bug on ProFTPD 1.2.10 stable
				version, but the version 1.3.0rc3 introduced some interesting changes, among them:

				1. another (integer) overflow in sreplace!
				2. now it is possible to reach sreplace stack-based buffer overflow bug via
					the "pr_display_file" function!
				3. stupid '.message' file display bug

				So we decided to choose ProFTPD 1.3.0 as a target for our exploit.
				To reach the bug, you need to upload a specially created .message file to a
				writeable directory, then do "CWD <writeable directory>" to trigger the invocation
				of sreplace function.

				Note that ProFTPD 1.3.0rc3 has introduced a stupid bug: to display '.message'
				file you also have to upload a file named '250'. ProFTPD 1.3.0 fixes this bug.

				The exploit is a part of VulnDisco Pack since Dec 2005.
