Concurrent Execution using Shared Resource with Improper Synchronization ('Race Condition')
Core FTP Server 1.2 before build 515 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (reachable assertion and crash) via an AUTH SSL command with malformed data, as demonstrated by pressing the enter key twice.
CWE-362 - Race Condition
A race condition occurs in a shared memory program when two threads/processes access the same shared memory data, and at least one thread executes a write operation. This vulnerability manipulates the time to check vs. time to use (TOC/TOU) gap between the threads in the critical section to cause disorientation in the shared data. The impact can vary from compromising the confidentiality of the system to causing the system to crash or to execute arbitrary code.
