Introduction
------------

"SmbFTPD is a FTP daemon for FreeBSD, Linux, and other UNIX like operating
system. It has flexible directory access control facility that could be
combined with Samba's share access right."



Vulnerability
-------------

A format string vulnerability exist in the SMBDirList-function, dirlist.c,
which gets called when a LIST/NLST is issued. It could be triggered by
the way it outputs recursive listing on directories.
It's caused due to misuse of fprintf.

In order for this vulnerability to be exploited, an attacker would need a
valid account (including anonymous) with permission to create directories.
Successful exploitation may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
