Date of Discovery: 14-May-2009

Vendor: Dxmsoft
URL: http://www.dxm2008.com/

Affected:
XM Easy Personal FTP Server 5.7.0
Earlier versions may also be affected

Overview:
XM Easy Personal FTP Server is a easy use FTP server Application. Multiple Denial of service vulnerability exists in XM 
Personal FTP Server that causes the application to crash when a long list of arguments is sent to certain FTP commands 
post authentication.

Details:
The DoS vulnerability exists because the application fails to handle large parameter values sent to certain FTP 
commands like HELP or TYPE. When a long value ( > 4700 Bytes) is passed as a parameter to these commands, the FTP 
server cannot process it and it will crash. Note that this is a post authentication vulnerability, so user must be 
logged in to exploit the vulnerability. No registers are overwritten, hence remote code execution may not be possible.

Severity:
High

Solution:
No patches available from vendor
No workaround is available at this time

Vendor Communication Timelines:
05.14.2009 - Vulnerability Discovered
05.15.2009 - Vendor Notified
05.20.2009 - No Response, Vendor Notified again
06.05.2009 - No Ack from Vendor, Public Disclosure
