Re: FTP exploit?
- From: ken harris.

probably due to the increasingly long thread on vulnerabilities in ftpds that
is going on over in BUGTRAQ. Nothing too new, but every time a new 'sploit' is
released there, every kiddie on the block just has to try it.
to be a bit more specific.
the exploit/bug comes from a problem with globbing.
(ie: ls */../*/../*/../*/../*/../*/../*/../*/../*/../*/../*/../*/../*)
affected ftp daemons are the majority of them (proftpd etc)
except ncftpd and glftpd from what i've seen.
it was another one of those 'i'm so elite i'm going to
notify the vendors 30 minutes before posting to bugtraq'
so right now vendors are working on latest versions.
