WinProxy HTTP CONNECT Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for WinProxy < 6.1 R1c

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote HTTP proxy is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running WinProxy, a proxy server for Windows.

The version of WinProxy installed on the remote host reportedly

vulnerability. Using a specially-crafted HTTP CONNECT request, a
remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to execute arbitary
code on the affected host subject to the rights under which the
service runs.
