EasyFTP Server list.html path Stack Buffer Overflow



This module exploits a stack-based buffer overflow in EasyFTP Server and earlier. EasyFTP fails to check input size when parsing the 'path' parameter supplied to an HTTP GET request, which leads to a stack based buffer overflow. EasyFTP allows anonymous access by default; valid credentials are typically unnecessary to exploit this vulnerability. After version, this package was renamed "UplusFtp". Due to limited space, as well as difficulties using an egghunter, the use of staged, ORD, and/or shell payloads is recommended.

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/http/easyftp_list
msf exploit(easyftp_list) > show targets
msf exploit(easyftp_list) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(easyftp_list) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(easyftp_list) > 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.
