TwinFTP Server Directory Traversal Vulnerability
<http://www.twinftp.com/> TwinFTP Server is an FTP server released by
Jigunet Corporation for the Windows platform.
A vulnerability exists in TwinFTP server that allows a malicious user
access files outside the FTP directory. This vulnerability may also be
exploited to bypass directory restrictions enforced by the FTP server to
write arbitrary files into directories that the server process has access
* TwinFTP Server Standard Version 1.0.3 R2 (Win32)
* TwinFTP Server Enterprise Version 1.0.3 R2 (Win32)
* TwinFTP Server Standard/Enterprise Version 1.0.3 R3 released before 10
* TwinFTP Server Standard Version 1.0.3 R3 (Win32), released on 10 Sep
2004. is vulnerable.
A directory traversal vulnerability exists in several FTP commands of
TwinFTP that may be exploited by a malicious user to access files outside
the FTP directory. The problem lies with the incorrect filtering of
directory name supplied to CWD, STOR and RETR commands. Directory
traversal is possible when the directory name contains three dots and a
forward slash, e.g. ".../winnt".
This vulnerability may be exploited to bypass directory restrictions
enforced by the FTP server to write arbitrary files into directories that
the server process has access to. This is critical since it may be abused
by malicious users to overwrite system files within the Windows directory
if the TwinFTP server runs with Administrator privilege.
Upgrade to Version 1.0.3 R3 that is released on 10 September 2004. Version
1.0.3 R3 which was released before 10 September 2004 is partially
vulnerable in RETR and STOR commands.
