Core FTP 2.0 – ‘XRMD’ Denial of Service (PoC)

July 26, 2018 - Bugs
# Exploit Title: Core FTP 2.0 - 'XRMD' Denial of Service (PoC)
# Date: 2018-07-24
# Exploit Author: Erik David Martin
# Vendor Homepage: http://www.coreftp.com/
# Software Link: http://www.coreftp.com/server/download/CoreFTPServer.exe
# Version: Version 2.0, build 653, 32-bit
# Tested on: Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Service Pack 3
# CVE: N/A

# Proof of concept:
# Create a new domain and set IP address
# Use the default certificate by Core FTP Server
# Set base directory
# Create an anonymous user (anonymous:anonymous) for example
# Set a path for the user
# Start the server
# Run exploit: python exploit.py *target ip* anonymous anonymous
# Watch the server crash...
# The exploit will work for any user, and not just anonymous

	password = sys.argv[3]

	sys.exit()
