AnalogX Proxy malformed HTTP request buffer overflow
|analogx-proxy-http-bo (9455)||High Risk|
AnalogX Proxy is vulnerable to a buffer overflow caused by improper handling of malformed HTTP requests. By sending a specially-crafted HTTP proxy request to TCP port 6588, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with privileges of the Proxy daemon or cause the server to crash.
Upgrade to the latest version of AnalogX Proxy (4.12 or later), available from the AnalogX Web site. See References.
