ProFTPD _xlate_ascii_write() Buffer Overrun Vulnerability

A remotely exploitable buffer overrun was reported in ProFTPD. This issue is due to insufficient bounds checking of user-supplied data in the '_xlate_ascii_write()' function, permitting an attacker to overwrite two bytes of memory adjacent to the affected buffer. The attacker may be able to exploit this to execute arbitrary code in the context of the server. The attacker may trigger this issue by submitting a RETR command to the server.
