Ipswitch WS_FTP 2007 Professional - 'WSFTPURL.exe' Local Memory Corruption

EDB-ID:

29463

CVE:

N/A

Author:

LMH

Type:

dos

Platform:

Windows

Published:

Ipswitch WS_FTP 2007 Professional is prone to a local memory-corruption vulnerability. This issue occurs when the 'wsbho2k0.dll' library fails to handle specially crafted arguments.

Due to the nature of this issue, an attacker may be able to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of the affected kernel, but this has not been confirmed. Failed exploit attempts result in kernel panics, denying service to legitimate users.

Ipswitch WS_FTP 2007 Professional is vulnerable to this issue; other versions may also be affected.
