Rumpus FTP Server 1.3.x/2.0.3 Stack Overflow DoS Vulnerability. CVE-2001-0706. Dos exploit for osx platform


Rumpus FTP Server is an implementation for MacOS which allows file-sharing across TCP/IP connections.

Rumpus FTP is prone to a denial of service. An ftp user can engage the attack by making a directory with an unusual number of sub-folders. This forces the software to quit, as it is unable to handle the creation of so many directories at one time. The FTP server must be rebooted to regain normal functionality.

It is required that a user be logged in to carry out this attack. It may be possible for remote users to exploit this vulnerability, but authentication is required and anonymous ftp access does not grant users the privileges neccesary to create directories. 

Executing command 'mkdir A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A:A' will make Rumpus quit.
