Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Double free vulnerability in the getreply function in ftp.c in netkit ftp (netkit-ftp) 0.17 20040614 and later allows remote FTP servers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly have unspecified other impact via some types of FTP protocol behavior. NOTE: the netkit-ftpd issue is covered by CVE-2007-6263.
CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow
Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
