Description Alexandros Toptsoglou 2020-02-27 10:55:41 UTC
CVE-2020-9274

An issue was discovered in Pure-FTPd 1.0.49. An uninitialized pointer
vulnerability has been detected in the diraliases linked list. When the
*lookup_alias(const char alias) or print_aliases(void) function is called, they
fail to correctly detect the end of the linked list and try to access a
non-existent list member. This is related to init_aliases in diraliases.c.
