The external LIST command used in many Waffle BBS installations may allow a user to display the content of any file on the system. The issue is that the LIST command would allow a user to supply any file on the system, including the /waffle/admin/password file. Because the command also ignores the ^Z character, it would display the entire file including the system password.
Waffle BBS contains a flaw that may allow a user to bypass file download ratio restrictions. The issue is due to the BBS software not properly filtering file requests passed to the ZMODEM program. By specifying a wildcard for file downloads, a user can download any file without it counting against their ratio.
