Talentsoft's Web+ development platform contains a buffer overflow in a component that also installs by default into all web sites produced by Web+.
Talentsoft Web+ is a set of tools for accelerated web site development. A component of Web+ named "
webpsvc.exe" contains a buffer overflow vulnerability. This component is used by the Web+ CGI program "
webplus.exe," which is installed by default in the cgi-bin directory when Web+ is used to build a web site.
By requesting a specially crafted URI from a site running Web+, an attacker can execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user running webpsvc.exe, typically the SYSTEM user.
