Title : Quick 'n Easy FTP Server pro/lite
Logging unicode stack overflow

********************************************

information :

Quick 'n Easy FTP Server is a simple and handy FTP server which is
developed by Pablo van der Meer . there is a unicode overflow in the
logging process ,after enough long string sent as an argument of a
command when you go to the logging section overflow happens and
SEH gets hit .

********************************************

simple exploitation :

it is a unicode overflow so any code execution wont be stable .
here is a sampe way to trigger the vulnerability :
login to the FTP Server then try :
command aaaaa < about 1100 a (0x61) here > aaaa
then in the ftp server main window go to Logging section .
the FTP Server will crash . and in the ftptrace.txt we have :
24/07/2006 20:41:53.500 Exception caught by MainExceptionHandler():
Exception : c0000005
Address : 00610061
Access Type : write
Access Address : 00000000
the amazing part is if your string was large enough the ftp server
detect overflow and prevents from any pointers overwrite .

********************************************

Risk Rate : Medium

1) it is a unicode overflow , and exploitation wont be stable because
of the vulnerability's nature .
2) successful exploitation needs the admin go to the logging section .
3) it needs authentication .

********************************************

workaround :

no patch , all targets are vulnerable.
