The specific flaw exists within the ftAgent.exe service, which listens by default on TCP port 8045. When handling messages with opcode 65 (0x41) and subcode 00, the vulnerable function uses a uninitialized stack variable in calculating a memory pointer. Also, the function uses signed extension and signed comparison when checking the uninitialized stack variable, which allows arbitrary negative values to bypass the check. This could result in corruption of a controlled memory location, which can be leveraged to execute code under the context of the SYSTEM user.
