Late last week, security researchers at jura.ba reported a Denial of
Service vulnerability in War FTP Daemon 1.82.
The problem was rooted in the way log messages was relayed from the
internal log handler to the Windows Event log when the sever was running
as a Windows service. Theoretically, it could be possible to execute
remote code using this vulnerability.
I am therefore rating this vulnerability as critical.
A fix for the problem can be downloaded from http://www.warftp.org/?menu=344
