ViRobot Linux Server Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for remote buffer overflow vulnerability in ViRobot Linux Server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote server is prone to a remote buffer overflow attack.

Description :

The remote host is running ViRobot Linux Server, a commercial anti-
virus product for Linux.

According to its banner, the installed version of ViRobot Linux Server
suffers from a remote buffer overflow vulnerability in its web-based
management interface. By passing specially-crafted data through the
'ViRobot_ID' and 'ViRobot_PASS' cookies when calling the 'addschup'
CGI script, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to write arbitrary
data to root's crontab entry, thus giving him complete control over
the affected host.
