FTE Text Editor vfte Overflow
Local Access Required Input Manipulation
Loss of Integrity

- 漏洞描述

A local overflow exists in FTE Text Editor. The FTE Text Editor lacks adequate bounds checking on the command line arguments. With a specially crafted request, an attacker can cause the setuid binary "vfte" to execute arbitrary commands as root, resulting in a loss of integrity.

- 漏洞讨论

It has been reported that vfte is prone to multiple unspecified buffer overflow vulnerabilities. These issues are due to a failure of the application to verify buffer boundaries while processing user supplied input.

Successful exploitation would immediately produce a denial of service condition in the affected process. This issue may also be leveraged to execute code on the affected system with root privileges, as this application is setuid root.
