Marsu has discovered a vulnerability in Dream FTP Server, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when processing data to be displayed in the "Server Log". This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via an overly long (more than 2000 bytes), specially crafted string sent to the service.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.02. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Use another product.
