Microsoft IIS FTP 5.0 Remote SYSTEM Exploit

Via -

A remote Microsoft FTP server exploit was released today by Kingcope, and can be found at,

A quick examination of the exploit showed some fancy manipulations in a highly restrictive environment that lead to a”useradd” type payload. The main issue was the relatively small payload size allowed by the SITE command, which was limited to around 500 bytes.

After a bit of tinkering around, we saw that the PASSWORD field would be most suitable to shove a larger payload (bindshell). A quick replacement of the original “user add” shellcode with a secondary encoded egghunter – and a bind shell was presented to us! I wonder how long this 0day has been around…As Rel1k would say to logan_WHD…”it’s OK, it’s OK…”.

The exploit can be downloaded from our exploit archive. To entertain the masses, we also made “Microsoft IIS 5.0 FTP 0 Day – The movie


HD Moore also has added Kingcope's IIS FTP exploit to the Metasploit trunk: [ msf> use exploit/windows/ftp/microsoft_ftpd_nlst ]
