# $$$ NetBSD ftpd and ports *Remote ROOOOOT $HOLE$* $$$
#
# About
#
# tnftpd is a port of the NetBSD FTP server to other systems.
# It offers many enhancements over the traditional BSD ftpd,
# including per-class configuration directives via ftpd.conf(5),
# RFC 2389 and draft-ietf-ftpext-mlst-11 support, IPv6,
# transfer rate throttling, and more.
# tnftpd was formerly known as lukemftpd,
# and earlier versions are present in Mac OS X 10.2 (as ftpd)
# and FreeBSD 5.0 (as lukemftpd).
#
# Description
#
# The NetBSD ftpd and the tnftpd port suffer from a remote stack overrun,
# which can lead to a root compromise.
#
# The bug is in glob.c file. The globbing mechanism is flawed as back in
# 2001.
#
# To trigger the overflow you can create a folder and use the globbing
# special characters (like STARS) to overflow an internal stack based buffer.
#
# gdb output tested on NetBSD 3.0 i386 NetBSD-ftpd 20050303 :
# (gdb) c
# Continuing.
#
# Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
# 0x00410041 in ?? ()
# (gdb)
#
# tnftpd-20040810 behaves similar.
# FreeBSD (lukemftpd) and MacOSX (ftpd) were not tested,
# however they could have the same bug, because of the same
# codebase.
#
# The problem when exploiting this kind of bug is,
# that we can only control 0x00410041, not the whole
# 32 bit. However it looks feasible to find a way
# to do a hole EIP redirection and/or exploit
# the bug the "unicode" way, which could be especially
# hard on BSD systems.
