i-FTP Schedule Buffer Overflow

This module exploits a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability in i-Ftp v2.20, caused by a long time value set for scheduled download. By persuading the victim to place a specially-crafted Schedule.xml file in the i-FTP folder, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash. This module has been tested successfully on Windows XP SP3.
