Denial of Service vulnerability in War FTP Daemon 1.82

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
