------------------------------[Description]---------------------------------

This exploit spawns a shell with root privileges. The exploit will be written into the file miniftpd.conf

vuln code:
void parseconf_load_setting(const char *setting){
while(isspace(*setting)) setting++;
	char key[128] = {0}, value[128] = {0};
	str_split(setting, key, value, '=');
	if(strlen(value) == 0){
		fprintf(stderr, "missing value in config file for : %s\n", key);
		exit(EXIT_FAILURE);
	}
....

The given var settings is a *char and will be splitted into key and value key and value are both 128 char long and settings can be longer than 128 + 128 chars. this issue will not be checked and stored. This causes a buffer overflow.

after return it
