iTechnology iGateway Content-Length Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for Content-Length buffer overflow vulnerability in iTechnology iGateway

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is using Computer Associates iTechnology iGateway
service, a software component used in various products from Computer
Associates.

The version of the iGateway service installed on the remote host
reportedly fails to sanitize Content-Length HTTP header values before
using them to allocate heap memory. A possible hacker can supply a negative
value, which causes the software to allocate a small buffer, and then
overflow that with a long URI. Successful exploitation of this issue
can lead to a server crash or possibly the execution of arbitrary
code. Note that, under Windows, the server runs with local SYSTEM
rights.
