FTP Synchronizer Professional Stack Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a stack buffer overflow vulnerability in FTP Synchronizer Pro version The overflow gets triggered by sending an overly long filename to the client in response to a LIST command. The LIST command gets issued when doing a preview or when you have just created a new sync profile and allow the tool to see the differences. This will overwrite a structured exception handler and trigger an access violation.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use exploit/windows/ftp/ftpsynch_list_reply
msf exploit(ftpsynch_list_reply) > show targets
msf exploit(ftpsynch_list_reply) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(ftpsynch_list_reply) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(ftpsynch_list_reply) > exploit

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
