BisonFTP v4r2 is a FTP daemon used on Microsoft Windows 9x/NT systems which has a remote denial of service vulnerability if sent long FTP commands, and can be tricked into revealing information about files outside the ftp root. It's not possible to get in contact with the people at http://www.bisonftp.com anymore. I guess a new version will never be released.

-[ DESCRIPTION ]----------------------------------------------------------------
I) BisonFTP is vulnerable to a DoS attack by sending ftp commands with big
data. By sending the ftp command ls or cwd with 4300 bytes or more,
BisonFTP will start 100% CPU usage until the socket is closed by the client.

about files outside ftp root.

ftp> ls @../

% Note that BisonFTP42.exe is NOT located in ftp root.


-[ AFFECTED VERSIONS ]----------------------------------------------------------
BisonFTP v4r2.
* Earlier versions are not tested.


-[ SOLUTION/WORKAROUND ]--------------------------------------------------------
It's not possible to get in contact with the people at http://www.bisonftp.com
anymore. I guess a new version will never be released.

Workaround, since there might not be a new version you probaly better to
install another FTP daemon.
