SolarFTP Server 2.0 is prone to a denial of service condition. It fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input resulting in a denial of service. With a specially crafted ‘USER’, ‘APPE’, ‘GET’, ‘PUT’, and ‘NLST’ command, a remote attacker can potentially disable the FTP service.

Software Description

Solar FTP Server is a handy and easy to use personal FTP server with features like virtual directories, simple and intuitive user interface, real-time activity monitoring and management.

Testing and Fuzzing

Using Very Simple FTP Fuzzer, we test the FTP server with various commands. The first command that we sent was APPE (append). The Windows exception handler pop out. That was verify that the server may be vulnerable to some commands.

Unfortunately, the junk that we sent did not overwrite the SEH nor the EIP. It just end in Denial of Service. In conclusion, there are 4 commands which make the server crash, APPE, NLST, PUT, and GET.

Proof of Concept

Here are the python script for the PoC.

#### Exploit information:
# SolarFTP 2.0 will suddenly stop (crash) while these commands were sent:
# Sending USER with junk also crashing the Admin Configuration but not the service.
# Stack contains our junk in random. Both EIP and SEH were not overwritten.

s=socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)

junk = "x41" * 80000
