DESCRIPTION:
Gjoko 'LiquidWorm' Krstic has discovered a vulnerability in FTPShell
Server, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a
user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when processing
certain Windows registry keys, which can be exploited to cause a
buffer overflow by e.g. tricking a user into installing a malicious
license key file.

Successful exploitation allows the execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 4.3. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Do not install untrusted license key files.
