               GuildFTPD Buffer Overflow and Memory Leak DoS

Author: Andreas Junestam <andreas () defcom com>
Co-Author: Janne Sarendal <janne () defcom com>
Release Date: 2001-05-22
======================================================================
------------------------=[Brief Description]=-------------------------
GuildFTPD contains two different problems:
1. Buffer overrun in the SITE command with the ability to execute
   arbitrary code
2. A memory leak in the input parsing code

------------------------=[Affected Systems]=--------------------------
- GuildFtpd v0.97 (probably earlier versions too)

----------------------=[Detailed Description]=------------------------
* SITE command Buffer Overflow
  All the SITE commands are handled in a dll(sitecmd.dll) which suffers
  from a buffer overflow. By sending a site command greater than 261
  bytes, a buffer will overflow and it is possible to execute
  arbitrary code. We have choosen not to include the working exploit.

* Memory Leak DoS
  The input parsing code in GuildFTPD contains a memory leak that will
  trigger if you send it a request containing a NULL(0x0) character.
  GuildFTPD will still answer new requests, but, eventually the server
  will run out of memory and the machine will crash.

---------------------------=[Workaround]=-----------------------------
None for the moment

-------------------------=[Vendor Response]=--------------------------
This issue was brought to the developer's attention on the 24th of
April,
2001, no response so far.
