Novell NetWare NWFTPD MDTM Command Path Name Overflow DoS
Remote / Network Access
Denial of Service,
Loss of Integrity,
Loss of Availability
A remote overflow exists in NWFTPD. The product fails to perform correct boundary checks on the target file of an MDTM command resulting in a buffer overflow. With a specially crafted file path, an attacker can cause denial of service resulting in a loss of availability for the platform.
Currently, there are no known workarounds or upgrades to correct this issue. However, Novell has released a patch to address this vulnerability.
